The aims of the present study conducted during May and June of 2012 were to investigate the microbiological level of pollution of some lakes from Bucharest and to determine the concentration of nutrients in order to evaluate the pollution degree. Results indicated that the level of nitrogen species and phosphate pose no danger meanwhile the pH values of the water samples revealed a slightly alkaline reaction. The variety and complexity of water composition is defined not only by the variety of the chemical species but also by the different forms and concentrations of each of them. Microbiological analyses indicated the presence of fungal strains and yeasts.
