    Abstract: The aquatic environments which represent a vital resource for man are threatened by various pollution of anthropogenic origin. Chlorophyll-a being the consequence of the nutrient enrichment of water and linked to primary production, participates in the degradation of water quality by the proliferation of phytoplankton. Algal development depends on ... Show More

    Abstract: The anionic surfactants used in the soap industry and cosmetics appear as indicators of pollution of aquatic biodiversity. Moreover, these industries have experienced rapid growth in Côte d'Ivoire in recent years. Most of them are located in the Yopougon industrial area, thus continuously discharging their effluents into the Ebrié lagoon. This situ... Show More

    Abstract: Water of good microbiological quality distributed through pipelines fully guarantees the health of the populations who drink it. Its availability would prevent the inadequate use of groundwater that is sometimes poorly treated and of questionable quality. This work proposes to conduct an investigation on the microbiological quality of tap and groun... Show More
