DETERMINATION OF THE MICROBIOLOGICAL CHARACTERISTICS OF THE FECAL SLUDGE OF THE CITY OF CONAKRY
Daloba S., Mangué S., *Dr. Ansoumane S. and Mamby K.
In Conakry, as in most major cities in sub-Saharan Africa, there is very little sewage system. Autonomous drainage works are the most commonly used. These structures produce sludge that must be properly drained and treated in order to preserve the health of the population and protect the environment. The risks associated with the use of fresh fecal sludge in agriculture, in addition to the potential hazards of their untreated discharges into the wild, are potential hazards to human health. The objective of this study is to determine the bacteriological characteristics of the fecal sludge in the city of Conakry in order to make a choice among alternative technologies of treatment. To achieve this objective, a sampling and characterization of fecal sludge from the different municipalities of Conakry were carried out. Thus, the main results obtained indicate that: The concentrations in Fecal Coliforms per 100 ml of BV are: Matoto (15×105/100ml), Ratoma (14.9×105/100ml), Dixinn (13.2×105/100ml), Kaloum (1, 12.105/100ml) and Matam (0.44×105/100 ml). The parasitological qualities show the presence of eggs of certain parasites, which are: Toxoplasmagondii, Taenia saginata, Taenia solium, Ascaris lumbricoides, Duodenal hookworm, Trichocephalic trichiura, Larvae and Mansoni.[Full Text Article] [Download Certificate]
