dc.description.abstractWater quality evaluation is a global concern due to its effect on public health. Different procedures can be implemented to evaluate specific standards of water quality. DNA extraction to characterize the microbial community in the water distribution systems is important. To optimize the DNA extraction process the effect of residual chlorine and water composition was tested. The results exposed the limited effect of the samples dechlorination. Total cell number effect can be varied according to water quality. Also, the study indicated the possible inhibitory effect of the rust on the DNA extraction from drinking water samples.
