原始语种摘要: Dump sites are naturally associated with foul odour which obviously is product of microbial activities. The bacterial agents responsible for this decomposition may be injurious to humans. In order to determine the genera of bacteria responsible, Petri dishes containing three different types of media, nutrient, MacConkey and blood agars were exposed for fifteen minutes, and incubated at 37°C for 24 hours. Organisms that grew were analyzed to determine if they are pathogens. Five plates of each media were exposed, and the mean of the colony counts were expressed as colony forming units per millitre (cfu/ml). Three different dump sites were studied, namely school waste dump (SWD), Village waste dump (VWD) and Market waste dump (MWD). Results of Petri dish exposure for 15 mins showed mean...
