Occurence and Antibiotic Susceptibility of Some Bacteria in Saricay Stream (Canakkale, Turkey)

Nurcihan Hacioglu and Basaran Dulger

In this study microbial quality and prevalence of antimicrobial resistance among the enteric bacteria found in Saricay stream. For microbial quality total and faecal coliform and faecal enterococci parameters were determined. From isolated enteric bacteria Escherichia coli was the prevalent bacteria (63.33%) followed by Citrobacter freundii (10%), Enterobacter spp. (10%), Proteus vulgaris (8.33%), Klebsiella pneumoniae (5%) and Salmonella typhimurium (3.33%). Antimicrobial activity test was performed for 14 antibiotics. The highest rates of resistance were showed against erythromycin (91.66%), and Multiple Antibiotic Resistance Index of five stations vary between 0.21 – 0.33 values.
