AbstractThis research, was dealt with the isolation and identification of bacteria caused contamination in drinking water, and detection on the virulent pathogen E. coli O157: H7 strain in contaminated drinking water samples, the results indicated that most isolated bacteria belong to Enterobacteriaceae and the higher percent was E. coli (%32) , in addition to other bacteria ,found among there were Enterobacter cleacae (%19.3), E. sakazakii (%5.9), Citrobacter braakii (%8.8), Citrobacter freundii (%3.0), Proteus mirabilis (%7.4), Shigella sonni (%0.7), Salmonella (%5.2), Serratia plymuthica (%1.5), pseudomonae aeruginosa (%5.2) and Enterococcus faecalis (%10.4) .
E. coli serotypes were diagnosed in drinking water samples, to detect O157: H7 strain the result showed that (47.7 %) from all E. coli strains and (%15.6) from all other bacteria, while O157 strain formed (%22.7) percent and (%7.40) were most bacteria Isolated from drink water.
