Analysis and Characterization of Microorganisms from Heavy Metal Containing Wastewater

Madhumita Ghosh Dastidar | Eesha Prasad [2] | Jayanth D. R.

Abstract: In overcrowded metropolitan cities emerging in nations like India, industries compete with one another for growth and advancement to meet people?s needs. Toxic chemicals and heavy metals are not effectively removed from the effluents that are produced. This could harm living organisms, and plants when effluents are dumped directly or indirectly into water bodies. The current study aims to characterize and analyse the microorganisms present in the effluents collected from the Rajarajeshwari sewage outlet and Peenya industrial discharge in Bengaluru. Lead, Cadmium, and Chromium heavy metals were present in the collected samples. The microorganisms from the effluents were isolated and Bio-chemical tests were done for identification. The consortium of bacteria and Gram-negative Pseudomonas was found to be abundantly present. The enumeration of bacteria was observed by calculating CFU/ml (Colony Forming Unit/ml).

Keywords: Effluents, microorganisms, heavy metals, Pseudomonas, CFU
