ABSTRACT
The results of the bacteriological quality of the river Khoumane,Moulay Idriss Zerhoun (Morocco) indicate that the city of Moulay Idriss Zerhoun is confronted with realdifficulties in consolidation of its raw sewage. These difficultiesmay be relatedto the evacuation particularly , without pretreatment, thewater in the river Khoumane. Indeed, our results concerning the evolution of monthly bacteriological pollution of the river during the period August 2010 to July 2011,revealed that wastewater discharged into the river, strongly affect the quality of river and the bacterial charge evolves in a gradual from the upstream to downstream of the river also exhibiting seasonal variations. This worrying charge is expressed by a high load of fecal indicator bacteria varying between 50 and 18. 105 CFU /ml for total coliforms , 20 and 12.105 CFU /ml for fecal coliforms, 20 and 13.105 CFU /ml for fecal streptococci and, between 10 and 64.104 CFU/ ml for intestinal Enterococci. These results greatly exceed the standards Moroccan waters for irrigation. They could be the source of possible contamination of irrigated crops and groundwater in the region. And consequently have repercussions on human health.
