Abstract:

This research attempt to investigate the level of faucal contamination of well water in the study area. Inadequate supply of portable water and frequent contamination of existing supplies often result to serious health problem especially in developing countries like Nigeria. Ten household and three public wells, 300mL sterile bottles and ice box are some of the materials and methods used for the study. The result of the study reveals that most of the wells investigated were found to have grossly contaminated at different levels. In view of the level at which the existing supplies is polluted and the risk at which people in the study area are being exposed, there is urgent need for all the stakeholders to come to the aid of this vulnerable population so that frequent outbreak of water related diseases could be eradicated or minimized.
