2 0 1 3 Cao Martn Pea Is an invaluable natural habitat for the Metropolitan area of San Juan.

Cao Martn Pea + During the recurring years the mangroves and lagoons stretched of the Cao have been contaminated and stretched out into smaller measurements. Cao Martn Pea

The deterioration of this area has taken its toll on the residents lifestyles. How to Improve !! The decontamination of the lagoon that boards the community. Rehabilitation of the

estuary system. To broaden the communitys knowledge of the microbial presence and the harms that can be encountered. Our objectives

+ To detect the presence of pathogenic enteric bacteria such as Salmonella and Shigella SPP. + To acquire knowledge of the microbial presence found in the

Cao Martn Pea. + Refine research skills through different bacteriological techniques. + Analyze and compare the degree of contamination found with past investigations.

+ Raise awareness to the community. Hypothesis In the past year our fellow classmates were able to detect the presence of Shigella serotypes A,B and C. The Cao Martn Pea has excessive levels of coliforms, indicators of fecal matter that represent a hazard for the community.

Hypothesis + Because of this information we can say there is a high probability of encountering Salmonella and Shigella SPP. Bacteria due to the high coliform levels resulting from water contamination by fecal matter. Coliform bacteria Rod-shaped Gram

negative bacillus. Lactose fermenters with the production of acid and gas when incubated at 3537C. Easy to culture and their presence is used to

indicate fecal contamination by other pathogenic organisms in the water. Enterobacteriaceae Total coliforms: Escherichia Klebsiella Serratia

Citrobacter Fecal coliform: Eschericia coli Escherichia coli

Klebsiella pneumoniae Enterobacter Serratia marcescens Citrobacter Salmonella spp. Vs Shigella spp. Salmonella spp.

Rod-shaped Gram negative bacillus Non-spore forming. Motile enterobacteria Facultative anaerobes

Hydrogen sulfide production which can be detected on a TSI growth media Shigella spp. Rod-shaped Gram

negative bacteria Non-spore forming and non-motile bacteria Salmonella Pathogenicity Most of the infections are due to the ingestion of

contaminated food. Salmonella is responsible for various illnesses such as: Typhoid fever Paratyphoid fever

Foodborne illnesses Enteritis Salmonella also known as food poisoning Salmonella. Shigella Pathogenicity Most of the infections are

caused via ingestion. The illness is known as Shigellosis. During infection, Shigella typically causes dysentery .

agglomerans Station#1 Conclusions The high level of contamination is due to: Stagnant water in

some areas. Sewage and water discharge in to the cano. Deposition of debris into the community. Conclusions of the Research From 2004 to 2008 the amount of bacteria were

less than a million/ ml of water. This could be due to the removal of debris Effort of government and people that lives in the community. + During our Research period we noticed a sudden decrease in the level of bacteria.

+ Although we were not able to isolate colonies of Salmonella, we did isolate Citrobacter freundi, Yersinia enterocolitica and Shigella Spp. + Which are indicative of the severity of contamination and a possible source of contamination with pathogens to the residents of nearby areas. We recommend: To maintain the movement of dredging and

cleaning of the entire San Juan Estuary. We saw that according to data, levels of bacteria were down under a million. With a little of effort is possible to maintain to provide a better life to the people. To Help organizations and people that live there in a constant way not only, to show interest when elections are near. References
