ABSTRACT

The quality of water from Otamiri River, Nworie River and Bore hole water as sources of municipal water supply system in Owerri has been evaluated by analyzing samples of raw water collected from Otamiri River and Nworie River and comparing them with selected borehole and treated water samples. Some selected borehole water analyses were carried out for their physiochemical parameters, major ions, nutrients and bacteriological quality. The obtained values from the analysis are:- Ammonia (mg/l) = 0.65, Total Iron (Fe3+) (mg/l) = 0.40, pH = 7.57, Sodium (Na+) (mg/l) – 0.95, Nitrate (mg/l) = 0.96, Nitrite (mg/l) = 1.30. The observed values were compared with standard values of the World Health Organization (WHO) for potable water. The lack of adequate funding by government has been identified as one of the problems faced by operators for the supply of potable water to consumers.
