R. KOWSALYA, A. UMA, S. MEENA AND K. SARAVANABAVA

Abstract

Pour double lake, also known as Erettai Eri is an important water source for people residing in Chennai, Tamilnadu. Water samples were collected from Porur double lake, water treatment systems and distribution points and analyzed for the microbiological quality. Microbiological analyses of samples showed the presence of bacterial and fungal human pathogens. The presence of putative virulent genes in the bacterial human pathogens like Aeromonas hydrophila and Salmonella sp isolated were confirmed by polymerase chain reaction (PCR). The fungal pathogens isolated from the water samples include Acremonium sp., Aspergillus sp., Chaetomium globosum, Mucor sp and Penicillium sp.
