Abstract:

Microbial study was done on two freshwater systems located in Viluppuram District of Tamil Nadu. Total bacterial density ranged from 6.2 - 14.4´107 cfu/lit in Mukaiyur lake and from 5.4 - 8.6´106 cfu/lit in Tirukoilur lake. Maximum Total Bacterial Density was noticed in November in both systems. Total coliform ranged from 165 - 1635/100 ml in Mugaiyur lake and from 315 - 521/100 ml in Thirukoilur lake. Mukaiyur lake recorded 22 bacterial species belonging to 16 genera, while Thirukoilur lake recorded 28 species belonging to 18 genera. In both the systems there were 11 bacterial  perennial species occurred during study period.


Keywords: Freshwater, Lakes, Coliform Bacteria, Bacterial Diversity.
