Abstract454 Pyrosequencing was applied to examine bacterial communities in sediment samples collected from a river receiving effluent discharge from rural domestic sewage (RDS) and various factories, including a tannery (TNS), clothing plant (CTS), and button factory (BTS), respectively. For each sample, 4,510 effective sequences were selected and utilized to do the bacterial diversity and abundance analysis, respectively. In total, 1,288, 2,036, 1,800, and 2,150 operational taxonomic units… 
Targeted 16S rRNA amplicon analysis reveals the diversity of bacterial communities in carwash effluents
TLDR
The dominant bacterial genera found in the present study were previously proven to biodegrade hydrocarbons, and their presence in carwash effluents could bode well for in situ natural bioremediation of these contaminated sites.
Response of bacterial community compositions to different sources of pollutants in sediments of a tributary of Taihu Lake, China
TLDR
The results indicated that the four different pollution sources have dissimilar impacts on the sediment BCC in the tributary of Taihu Lake, while WWTPs exhibited the greatest potential to lead to biotic homogenization in river sediments.
Reduction of Arcobacter at Two Conventional Wastewater Treatment Plants in Southern Arizona, USA
TLDR
The prevalence of potentially pathogenic bacteria in WWTP effluent indicated the need for disinfection before discharge into the environment and the occurrence and reduction of Arcobacter, along with virulence genes (ciaB and pldA).
Bacterial community analysis of sulfate-reducing granular sludge exposed to high concentrations of uranium
Sulfate-reducing granular sludge was used for uranium-contaminated wastewater treatment and the responsible microbial community was analyzed. Four feedings, with 6 days for every feeding and 20
Microbial Community Response on Wastewater Discharge in Boreal Lake Sediments
TLDR
The study showed that wastewater can affect sediment microbial community through importing nutrients and organic material and altering habitat characteristics, but also through bringing wastewater-originated microbes to the sediment, and may have significant impact on the freshwater biogeochemistry, especially in the nutrient-poor boreal ecosystems.
Temporal–spatial variation of bacterial diversity in estuary sediments in the south of Zhejiang Province, China
TLDR
Characterization of the estuarine sediment bacterial communities indicated that chemical pollution has the potential to decrease the natural variability that exists among estuary ecosystems, however, chemical pollutants did not cause clear bio-homogenization in these estuaries.
Decay of elevated antibiotic resistance genes in natural river sediments after sedimentation of wastewater particles.
TLDR
The results indicate that the increased ARG abundances in receiving rivers are the result of a continuous import of ARGs from WWTP discharges or sewer overflow events, and imply that elevated ARGs do not persist in receiving riverbeds, if this continuous import is removed.
Bacterial Communities in Aquatic Sediment from Bukit Duabelas Raintforest and Oil Palm Plantation at Sumatra Indonesia
TLDR
The bacterial community shift in aquatic sediment of forest transformation indicated higher bacterial diversity index, richness index, some of phyla and genera in aquatic Sediment from forest than from oil palm plantation.
Impact assessment of bioaugmented tannery effluent discharge on the microbiota of water bodies
TLDR
Changes in the bacterial diversity of streamwater receiving a tannery effluent were monitored by high-throughput MiSeq sequencing and chemical oxygen demand and total bacterial count increased in response to discharge of the treated effluents.
Cultivable bacterial diversity, physicochemical profiles, and toxicity determination of car wash effluents
TLDR
It is concluded that carwash effluents are veritable sources of microbiological contaminants and potentially toxic chemical pollutants of public health and ecotoxicological concern.

Bacterial communities in different sections of a municipal wastewater treatment plant revealed by 16S rDNA 454 pyrosequencing
In this study, we successfully demonstrated that 454 pyrosequencing was a powerful approach for investigating the bacterial communities in the activated sludge, digestion sludge, influent, and
Pathogenic bacteria in sewage treatment plants as revealed by 454 pyrosequencing.
TLDR
This study applied 454 high-throughput pyrosequencing to analyze potentially pathogenic bacteria in activated sludge from 14 municipal wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) across four countries, plus the influent and effluent of one of the 14 WWTPs.
Impact of an urban effluent on the bacterial community structure in the Arga River (Spain), with special reference to culturable gram-negative rods.
TLDR
It is shown that the bacterial community structure changes definitively downstream from the discharge and that Aeromonas were common throughout the sampling zone, and cannot be considered good indicators of pollution in this setting compared to some genera of Enterobacteriaceae or some species of Acinetobacter.
Analysis of the bacterial community in a laboratory-scale nitrification reactor and a wastewater treatment plant by 454-pyrosequencing.
TLDR
It was found that the commonly used informatics tool "RDP classifier" may drastically assign Nitrosomonas sequences into a wrong taxonomic unit resulting in underestimation of ammonia-oxidizing bacteria in the bioreactors.
Characterization of Bacterial Communities Associated with Organic Aggregates in a Large, Shallow, Eutrophic Freshwater Lake (Lake Taihu, China)
TLDR
Horizontal heterogeneity of OABC exists within habitats, suggesting that the trophic state of the water and the physicochemical properties of organic aggregates (OA) play a key role.
Wastewater Treatment Effluent Reduces the Abundance and Diversity of Benthic Bacterial Communities in Urban and Suburban Rivers
TLDR
It is suggested that WWTP effluent has the potential to reduce the natural variability that exists among river ecosystems and indicate that WWTB effluent may contribute to biotic homogenization.
Denaturing Gradient Gel Electrophoretic Analysis of Ammonia-Oxidizing Bacterial Community Structure in the Lower Seine River: Impact of Paris Wastewater Effluents
TLDR
The CTO primers used in this study were shown not to be completely specific to AOB of the β subclass of Proteobacteria, and it was demonstrated that when DGGE patterns are interpreted, all the different bands must be sequenced, as one major DGGE band proved to be affiliated with a group of non-AOB in theβ subclass ofproteob bacteria.
The influence of untreated wastewater to aquatic communities in the Balatuin River, The Philippines.
TLDR
Algae were found to be insensitive to high BOD and ammonia concentrations, however, taxa richness and abundance of macroinvertebrates were influenced greatly by the discharges, and the lack of recovery observed was attributed to influences of low DO, high ammonia and poor colonization from upstream and downstream reaches due to organically-enriched discharges.
Populations of antibiotic-resistant coliform bacteria change rapidly in a wastewater effluent dominated stream.
TLDR
Results illustrate the difficulty in tracking the input and fate of antibiotic resistance and in relating the presence of low antibiotic concentrations to selection or persistence of antibiotic resistances.
Nitrification and Nitrifying Bacteria in the Lower Seine River and Estuary (France)
TLDR
Although the diversities of the ammonia oxidizers appear to be similar for the two sites, only half of the restriction patterns are common to both sites, which could be explained by the differences in ammonium concentrations, which are much lower in the upper estuary than in the river at the effluent outlet.
