HCA is able to sort different objects into the same group based on similarity between objects, which involve (1) Ward's methods using variance analysis to minimize between any two clusters [18, 21]; (2) measuring the similarity through Euclidean distance between two samples [18, 21]; and (3) a dendogram to provide the results for high similarity with small distances between clusters in a group [12].
The dendogram shows that sampling stations in the present study can be grouped into four significant clusters as illustrated by Figure 4.

This showed that most of the isolates might have originated from a similar lineage [29] the main dendogram cluster consisted of about 87% of the total Eenterobactereace isolates and originate from the similar lineage.
