To determine the prevalence of enteroviruses in aquatic environments in Shenzhen, water samples were collected monthly from April 2010 to December 2011. After concentration by the filter adsorption-beef extract elution method, the enteroviruses were propagated in RD cells. Thirty-five of 105 water samples (33.33 %) were positive for cytopathic effect. E11 and E12 were the most common serotypes and had high genetic diversity in part of the VP1 region. The high prevalence of enteroviruses in water suggests that surveillance of enteroviruses in aquatic environments and evaluation of the risk associated with enteroviruses in water to public health are needed.
