This contribution focuses on an analysis of sand from nine different wastewater treatment plants in South Moravian Region. We conducted an analysis and evaluation of microbial properties of sand in accordance to Act No. 185/2001 Coll. on waste as amended, resp. Decree No. 381/2001 Coll. Content of following parameters were monitored, thermotolerant coliform bacteria, coliform bacteria, enterococci, total solid, ash free dry mass. We encountered several interesting findings, which pertained mainly to the content of microorganisms in sand. Knowledge of microorganism content should show, how the primary treatment of the wastewater treatment plant works, and should be very interesting indicator.
