Abstract

This study was carried out at Al-Muthanna province, it aims to determine bacterial quality of three (Oasis, Mina and Al-Rawdhateen) brands of bottled water from different sources that are consumed in Al-Muthana province and compare it with national and international standards. This study was conducted from August 2011 to February 2012. A survey of 60 duplicate water sample. The multiple-tube fermentation technique was used for the determination of total coliform in all samples. All bacterial tests was carried in researches laboratory of science collage. The statistical analysis of results using analysis of variance showed that there are significant differences among bottled water sample. The bacteriological tests of water showed that the bacterial failure percentage was 26.67% of bottled water samples. the most probable number of total coliform ranged between 12.30 to 81.0 CFU/ 100ml.
