Abstract
In the present study total thirty heavy metal resistant bacteria were isolated from sewage of industrial effluents, garages and petrol pumps of Cachar district of Assam, India, against copper, zinc, and lead. Samples were streaked on selective media?s and incubated at 370C for 24 hrs for recovery of potent isolates. The isolated and distinct colonies were sub-cultured and obtain in the form of pure culture and identified on the basis of their morphology and biochemical characters. There were decreases in total count and microbial population diversity with increasing metal concentrations and the predominant isolates obtained were Pseudomonas sp., Klebsellia sp. and Bacillus sp. Some isolates exhibited high resistance to heavy metals with minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) for heavy metals as 50μg/ml (for copper), 180 μg/ml (for lead) and 1500μg/ml (for zinc). They also showed multiple heavy metal tolerance and were multi antibiotic resistant.
