The bacteriological status of sewage water of Jessore Medical College Hospital (surgery ward), and Shaheed Mashiur Rahman Hall of Jessore Science & Technology University was analyzed in this study. Varying with the types of sewage water, kinds and load of microorganisms may differ significantly. Hospital sewage gathers many types of microorganisms including severe pathogenic and non pathogenic origins; and the sewage water is supposed to have clinical discharges with diversified drugs and other residues. On the other hand residential hall sewage contains excreta from persons of different age and habits with their distinct physical history. The water samples were found to contain Gram negative bacteria like Escherichia coli, and Enterobacter spp. The persistent of antibiotic drugs in sewage water and some other daily leftovers can interfere with the inhabiting bacterial physiology and generate new characteristics like multi drug resistance, heavy metal tolerance and so on. This assumption was experimentally examined by performing antibiogram with four different antibiotics and result showed their sensitivity of distinct level to the two randomly selected and identified bacteria. To determine if the antibiotic resistance is of plasmid born or not, the bacterial samples has been kept into stock culture and will be taken under further experiment(s) soon.
