Author : Satihal S. S, Magadum S.R and Yadawe M. S

The microbiological quality of underground water of Vijayapur was analyzed. Underground water was collected from different locations in the Vijayapur city. All water samples were subjected to bacteriological studies using standard bacteriological methods with little modifications. Twenty separate underground water samples were collected from the three different locations. The E coli concentration ranged from 102 to 10 5 / 100 ml and it was found that eight of twenty samples were detected to contain salmonella. Microbial quality may vary rapidly and widely but short-term peaks in pathogen concentration may increase disease risks considerably and may also trigger outbreaks of waterborne disease.
