Study of Bacterial Contaminants and some Chemical Elements of the Euphrates River and Al-Fallujah City Drainage
Keywords:Bacterial pollutants, Chemical elements, Euphrates, bacteriological, Bacterial isolates
This article included bacteriological and some chemical elements study of pollution from Euphrates river
and Al-Flalloja city drainage. The study of four selected sites which are Euphrates river (T), Al-Falahat (F)
drainage, Al-Ne’emya (N) drainage, and Al-Bo Alwan (B) drainage in the period 11-13/December/2016
Bacteria were isolated and diagnosed in water samples depending on their cultural, microscopic biochemical
tests. Results showed that the water samples were polluted with bacteria produced by human and animal
wastes, 7out 20 isolates were selected and diagnosed. The study included counting the concentration of
some chemical ions such as Sodium, Potassium using a flame photometer, the highest concentration of
Sodium was in station F and the highest concentration of Potassium was at the station B, concentrations of
carbonates and bicarbonates were measured using titration method, the highest concentration of bicarbonates
ion was at station T, it also showed no carbonates in a water sample
