The problem of water scarcity is becoming more pronounced especially in countries with arid and semi-arid climates such as Morocco. Wastewaters discharge into different aquatic ecosystems (groundwater, sea water, river, lake water...), are draining different types of microorganisms and hazardous chemicals. The microbiological risk is not negligible, especially in areas where wastewater or other contaminated water, are reused for irrigation without preliminary treatment or for direct consumption…

Vibrio cholerae non-O1 in bivalve mollusks harvesting area in Bahia, Brazil
TLDR
The presence of an imipenem-resistant and MβLs-producing V. cholerae in a river mouth aquatic environment, which is a natural aviary of bivalve mollusks, represents a risk to the health of the population and alarms the public health agencies.

ECOLOGY AND TOXIGENICITY OF VIBRIO CHOLERAE NON-O1 ISOLATED FROM TROPICAL RIVER WATER
TLDR
Of the test strains isolated during summer and monsoon (March-October), 12% showed hemolysin production, while 52% were found to cause fluid accumulation in suckling mice, and the isolates exhibited highest resistance for ampicillin.
Abundance and antibiotic resistance of non-O1 Vibrio cholerae strains in domestic wastewater before and after treatment in stabilization ponds in an arid region (Marrakesh, Morocco)
TLDR
The abundance and antibiotic resistance of non-O1 Vibrio cholerae strains were studied in wastewater before and after treatment in stabilization ponds in an arid Mediterranean climate and high ampicillin, amoxicillin and mezlocillin resistance was observed at all sampling points.
Dynamics of Non-01 Vibrio Cholerae in Experimental Sewage Stabilization Ponds under Arid Mediterranean Climate
The temporal dynamics of non-01 Vibrio cholerae and pollution-indicator bacteria were studied in experimental stabilization ponds under an arid Mediterranean climate after 30 months of a biweekly
High Prevalence of Vibrio cholerae Non-O1 Carrying Heat-Stable-Enterotoxin-Encoding Genes among Vibrio Isolates from a Temperate-Climate River Basin of Central Italy
TLDR
Findings indicate that considerable circulation of sto-positive vibrios may occur in temperate-climate freshwater environments.
Environmental pollutions impacts on the bacteriological and physicochemical quality of suburban and rural groundwater supplies in Marrakesh area (Morocco)
TLDR
This study scrutinized bacteriological and chemical quality of groundwater supplies of Marrakesh (Morocco) within a year to assist local authorities in developing plans and actions to reduce the pollution to acceptable levels.
Dynamics of non-O1 Vibrio cholerae and fecal coliforms in experimental stabilization ponds in the arid region of Marrakesh, Morocco, and the effect of pH, temperature, and sunlight on their experimental survival.
TLDR
The spatial-temporal dynamics of non-O1 Vibrio cholerae numbers at a stabilization pond treatment plant confirmed the inverse behaviour of the two bacterial groups noted in the stabilization ponds, and appeared to be less sensitive to sunlight than E. coli whose survival was markedly reduced particularly during summer periods.
Seasonal incidence of and antibiotic resistance among Aeromonas species isolated from domestic wastewater before and after treatment in stabilization ponds
TLDR
The efficiency of stabilization pond treatment of domestic wastewater in removing culturable cells of motile Aeromonas and its influence on the incidence of resistance to seven antibiotics were investigated and demonstrated the need for identification to the species level.
