Abstract


: In Kisangani, 100 taps two major networks (low and high pressure) water distribution REGIDESO were selected for bacteriological analysis. From a quantitative point of view, the results of our study showed a high bacterial’ biodiversity in the REGIDESO distribution network: the number of bacteria varies from 6,10 to 290,10e bacteria / ml in the circulating biomass and from 4 106 to 90,106 bacteria / cm2 biomass biomass fixed generally, bacterial densities are highest in the biofiim than in the aqueous phase. The most identified genera Escherichia, Kiebsiella, Salmonella, Citrobacter Pseudomonas, Flavobacterium, Acinetobacter, Moraxella, Micrococcus, Alcaligenes, Corynebacterium Bacillus, Enterobacter. Maintaining the quality of drinking water should be characterized by stability of bacterial growth. The treatment plant and water distribution in the DRC must control the sources of the reduction of microbial contamination and limit microbial degradation of drinking water.

Author Keywords: biofilm, drinking water, distribution network, bacterial diversity.
