Comparative study to Some Microbial and Physiochemical parameters between Al-Kufa and Al-Manathera water before and after treatment

Abstract

The present study aimed to compare some microbial and Physiochemical parameters of Al-Kufa and Al-Manathera water before treatment (river water) and after treatment , the results revealed that there was significant increase (p=0.0082) in total available count (TVC) of Al-Kufa water before and after treatment since it was (25.666 cfu/ml and 0 cfu/ml) respectively . Moreover there was significant increase (p=0.0020) in total available count of Al-Manathera water before and after treatment since it was ( 32.666 cfu/ml and 0 cfu/ml ) respectively . The results of present study indicated that there was significant increase( p=0.0028 ) in total coliform count (TCC) in Al-Kufa water before and after treatment since it was ( 16.666 cfu/ml and 0 cfu/ml ) respectively and there was significant increase ( p=0.0075 ) in total coliform count in Al-Manathera water before and after treatment since it was (21.33 cfu/ml and 0 cfu/ml) respectively , and the results of this study improved that there was no growth for Salmonella.spp and V.cholera in Al-Kufa and Al-Manathera water after treatment.Also the present results indicate that there was significant increase( p= <0.0001 ) in total dissolved solids (TDS) in Al-Kufa water before and after treatment when it was ( 1188.3 ml/l and 854.67 ml/l) respectively , and there was significant increase ( p=<0.0001 ) to total dissolved solids in Al-Manathera water before and after treatment when it was ( 854.67 ml/l and 869.00 ml/l ) respectively , also the study improved that there was significant increase( p=<0.0001) in turbidity in Al-Kufa water before and after treatment when it was ( 34.667 ftu and 3.3133 ftu) respectively , and there was significant increase ( p=<0.0001 ) in turbidity in Al-Manathera water before and after treatment since it was ( 38.000 ftu and 3.2567 ftu ) respectively , and there was no significant increase between Al-Kufa and Al-Manathera water in turbidity after treatment , also the results demonstrated that was no significant increase between Al-Kufa and Al-Manathera water in acidity (PH) levels before and after treatment.
