The samples were collected from the industrial area for the microbial analysis. Microbial qualities of the samples were determined by the methods of total viable count by standard plate count method and the presences of pathogens were determined by the using the various test of pathogen. Results showed that the microbial contaminations were higher in the food grade samples with presence of bacteria and fungi in the food grade samples. The presence of pathogens such as E. coli and Salmonella spp. were showed 27.06% and 13.76% in food grade samples respectively. The remaining two pathogens S. aureus and Pseudomonas spp. contamination were showed in food grade samples 9.63% and 11.93% respectively.
