River pollution in Albania

River-water sampling Shqiperia 2010

Dr White collected water samples from five rivers in Albania during 2010. They were analysed by Prof Margarita Hysko, Microbiologist at Tirana Unversity. These were the first samples ever to consider biological pollutants, including faecal coliforms. There had been one other riverine study looking at chemical pollutants,including heavy metals. Albania is a very poor country, lacking most infrastructure.
