    Introduction: Due to increasing population, dumping of domestic waste is becoming a huge issue for the environment as well as to human health. Due to the past and the present scenario of environmental and the health issues, the isolation, and study of the presence of the microorganisms in the Chennai Corporation Dump (Perungudi), Chennai was done. Materials and Methods: As far as the sources, the dumping of this waste has been leading to various diseases (such as waterborne and airborne) and hazards to the people’s health residing in the nearby areas of Perungudi dumping zone, thereby testing these microbes (bacteria) against different parameters to justify the role of dumps with the health and environment was an important task. Results: Therefore, soil and semisolid waste samples were collected from the Chennai Corporation Dump (Perungudi) and tested for the presence of microorganisms. Conclusion: The microorganisms isolated were considered to be pathogenic for human health and environment.
