Presence of opportunistic micromycetes in superficial reservoirs and water distribution networks is revealed. Presence of fungi of species Penicillium, Aspergillus, Alternaria, Cladosporium as in superficial waters, in quantity from 3 cfu/100 sm3 to 10 cfu/100 sm3, and in the water distribution networks which number fluctuates from 2 cfu/100 sm3 to 5 cfu/100 sm3 is shown. Predominant yeast-like micromycetes such as Candida albicans, Rhodotorula glutines, etc. in limits from 1·102 cfu/100 sm3 to 1·105 cfu/100 sm3 in superficial reservoirs and to 50 cfu/100 sm3 in water distribution networks is noted. Influence of temperature, organic substances on quantitative growth micromycetes is established.

Keywords: superficial waters, water distribution networks, monitoring, micromycetes, sanitary-indicative microorganisms.
