The present work was aimed to detect the prevalence of klebsiella pneumonia in surface water which is a part of feacal coliform bacteria that consider one of microbial pollution indicators in water, and the detection carried through different tests but the most effective, reliable and easy application was PCR technique by using specific primers for the detection of 16srRNA gene. The results showed all of 40 isolates of klebsiella pneumonia were tested for the presence of the 16srRNA gene by PCR was carrying this gene.
