Xhelal Këpuska, Luan Daija, Ilir Kristo


The aim of this study was to evaluate the microbiologic contamination level of water in Lake Radoniq, where organisms have special importance indicators of fecal contamination. Water is tested for the presence of total coliform bacteria, fecal coliform bacteria of fecal origin and mesophilic aerobic bacteria. These organisms are mainly used as indicators of water quality studies; their presence indicates that fecal material has polluted the water. Monitoring was conducted for 3 years, in 2008, 2011 and 2012 over 12 months, and the average monthly minimum and maximum are shown in the tables on monitoring the water in Lake Radoniq in Gjakovë. This study shows that water pollution is very important. In almost entire Lake area the presence of fecal coliform bacteria appears. For this numerous analyses have been made and methods through the filtration system, preparation of nutrient agar and incubation have been used. Such waters where there is interference and uncontrolled discharge of sewage, need common processing as precloration, coagulation, flocculates, sludge, filtration, final disinfection by chlorination where these processes are carried out regularly with success in the water treatment plant in RWC ‘Radoniq’ in order to offer consumers the best quality water.

Keywords: Escherichia coli, water, total coliform, contamination, sample.
