ABSTRACT

 

The present study was aimed to analyze the physicochemical and bacteriological properties of public drinking water (tank water, bore well water, municipal supply tap water) of Bhopal, India. The methodology for physicochemical analysis of drinking water sample was followed by scientific manual (Adoniet al. 1985, APHA 2005 and HACH pH and TDS meter). It concludes that improper management, and poor water supply system for public places of drinking water is unhealthy and unfit for drinking purposes. Higher values of MPN, TDS, TH and Calcium made this water unfit for drinking. Ironically it is being supplied at all important public places of capital city of the state of Madhya Pradesh including Government hospitals, Railway stations, Bus stations and Government colleges.
