Abstract
Domestic wastewater is a source of pollutant microbes that cause various diseases and has the potential to be a source of transmission of pathogenic diseases carried through the water. Heavy metal contamination in waters, including domestic wastewater, affects water quality and biological components, including bacteria. This study aimed to find a consortium of tolerant strains bacteria originating from domestic wastewater in the form of a consortium to improve environmental health. The method used is to test heavy metal resistance using the streak plate method so that the slant contains HgCl2 and CuCl2. The resistance test is for bacterial strain consortium against various types and concentrations of heavy metals. The results showed a resistance of a consortium of strains of detergent-tolerant bacteria originating from domestic wastewater to various heavy metals up to a concentration of 40 mg/ L for Cu metals and 30 mg/ L for Hg metals. The composition of these strains is Bacillus cereus strain BQAR-01d, Bacillus thuringiensis strain MSS-2, Bacillus cereus strain JDA-1, and Bacillus sp. B31 (2008). The four consortiums of heterotrophic bacterial strains can be developed into decomposers of domestic wastewater to improve environmental health.
