The rapid industrialization in Tarai Bhavan region of Udham Singh Nagar, Uttarakhand has exposed the soil and water industrial effluent rich in pesticides like chlorophenols that are adversely affecting the ecosystem and disturbing the food chain. Soil is the basic requirement to sustain life on this earth for the living being including human beings, animals, planet or microorganisms (like bacteria and fungi). Bioremediation to remove pollutants is economic than the equivalent physico-chemical methods. It offers the potential to treat contaminated soil and ground water at the site without excavation. It requires lesser input and preserves the frame. The most attractive feature of bioremediation is the reduced impact on the ecosystems. In this study, both the microorganisms of bacteria and fungi P. fluorescence and P. chrysosporium were inoculated in fresh minimal salt medium containing 0, 10, 50, 100, 200 and 500 ppm of pentachlorophenol (PCP) concentrations in separate flask for few hours (4, 8, 16 and 32) and their potentiality to degrade PCP was assessed and found to be fruitful.
