Pseudomonas aeruginosa KLP-2 possessing antimicro- bial activity against Legionella pneumophila was isolated from cooling tower-waters. The culture filtrates of P. aeruginosa KLP-2 showed antimicrobial activity against L. pneumophila Vibro cholerae non-Ol. Bacillus cereus, Bacillus subtilis and staphylococcus aureus. The culture filtrates of P. aeruginosa KLP-2 showed the highest anti-microbial activity against. L pneumophila among micoorganisms tested in this study. The optimal conditions of temperature, pH carbon source and nitogen source to obtain maximal antimicrobial activity from culture filtrates of P. aeruginosa KLP-2 were determined to be 35$^{\circ}C$ pH 7.0 % of glycerol and 0.6% of proteose peptone respec- tively. The antimicrobial activity of culture filtrates from P. seruginosa KLP-2 was highest against L. pneumophila when cultivated with shaking for 24 h and without shaking for 4 day at 35$^{\circ}C$.
