Abstract: Microbiological characteristics of water of Pamba River at its middle region were studied for a period of one year from February 2012 to January 2013. Ten sampling sites were selected for the study. The investigation period was divided in to three seasons; pre monsoon, monsoon and post monsoon. Faecal and Total Coliform counts were analyzed. The results obtained were compared to Bureau of Indian Standards and biochemical characterization was done to identify the bacterial species. Bacterial count at all stations was above permissible limits in all seasons, but in the monsoon season considerable lowering was observed due to dilution. The presence of pathogenic bacteria like, Pseudomonas, Klebsiella, Salmonella, Enterobacter, Shigella etc. is a matter of concern in the present scenario of epidemic outbreaks in Kerala.
Keywords: Pathogenic bacteria, total coliform, faecal coliform, seasonal variation, Pamba River
