Journal Title:Journal of Chemical, Biological and physical sciences

This study was carried out to assess the groundwater and tap water quality of the villages around Chuka Town. The physicochemical and microbiological parameters were examined during wet and dry season. The results showed that pH, turbidity, fluoride, phosphorous, Fe, Mn, Pb, MPN of coliform organisms were above recommended levels by WHO, while the levels of the other parameters investigated were within the required levels by WHO. This reveals that people using these water sources are at a potential risk of contracting diseases. Hence a strong prevention measures are required to save the ground water and tap water from contamination.
