Abstract:

River Ganga with its source in Himalayas is considered to be the most sacred and holy river in Hinduism. Anthropogenic activities in the Ganga is deteriorating the quality of water and raising a serious question about purity of the water of river Ganga and its suitability to be used for drinking and other purposes. The present study is aimed to check the bacteriological quality of the Ganga water by analyzing the coliform bacteria and Bacteriophages in the Ganga. The sample were processed and analyzed for their quality with respect to various microbiological aspects. Investigation Method used for detection of coliform bacteria is Most Probable Number Technique and Surface plating and detection of bacteriophages are Isolated and characterized by plaque assay method.
