Özet

Water samples were collected from three different sites of the Saricay Stream (Canakkale, Turkey) in the months of October 2007 - September 2008 for the analyzing of some physico-chemical and microbiological parameters of the stream. In the present investigation, the mean average value (mean +/- SD) of the stream temperature, dissolved oxygen (DO), biochemical oxygen demand (BOD5), pH, electrical conductivity (EC), total coliform (TC) and faecal coliform (FC) were noted as 17.737 +/- 0.199 degrees C, 7.117 +/- 0.650 mg/L, 170.4 +/- 50.3 mg/L, 7.7018 +/- 0.0325, 18.50 +/- 2.33 mu S/cm, 46461 +/- 10311 MPN/100 mL and 33103 +/- 5863 MPN/100 mL, respectively. Based on results of comparison of data with WPCR, it is seen that waters of Saricay Stream at the sites 1, 2 and 3 belonged to Class 4, for parameter BOD5 and faecal coliform and belonged to Class 3 for parameter total coliform. We conclude that there is a great potential risk of infection of waters from the Saricay Stream.
