Impact of urban wastewater discharges on the microbiological pollution of rivers debouching into the Adriatic Sea


In this paperare represented some results of microbiological pollution of Albanian rivers that run off into the Adriatic Sea. Microbiological examination of water samples collected from 16 stations of 7 rivers in four seasons of the year before and after urban discharges indicates that river waters before urban discharges are generally pure from point of view of microbiological pollution,while after urban wastewater discharges the number of Feacal Coliforms and Faecal Streptococci is high or very high.This for the reason that urban wastewaters are not treated before discharge.It is strong recommended to begin as soon as possible the disposal and treatment of urban wastewater before discharging to the rivers,lakes,sea etc.
