Abstract: Wastewater treatment plants are major interface between rural and urban activities and the natural environment with problems relating to the survival and transmission of the fecal bacteria into streams and rivers. The main goal of this paper was to showed the impact of WWTPs on fecal populations bacteria and their dissemination into the aquatic ecosystems. The sampling campaigns were conducted in 2019 where the hospital and WWTPs wastewater from three cities from the south-eastern part of Romania and the surface water of their emissaries were trimestral collected. The quantitative and qualitative analysis of total and fecal coliforms indicated the efficiency of wastewater treatment processes but at the same time, the contribution of contamination with hospital effluents has been demonstrated. Also, the microbiological results showed the selectivity of the destruction of fecal coliform bacteria between wastewater and surface water.
