ABSTRACT

This project is designed to determine households’ access to safe water supply in Ootunja, Ikole-Ekiti, in terms of quality and quantity as the importance of improved water supply to human health cannot be over emphasized. However, safe/improve water supply to most Nigerian cities is still inadequate. In the study area the relationship between water quality, the degree of water source protection and quantity. This aim was achieved through the use of well-structured questionnaire in gathering information on time to water collect, distance from household to source, quantity collected, different water samples were collected and analyzed in the laboratory to measure the quality of the water that is being used for domestic activities in Ootunja, Ikole-Ekiti house-hold and it was compared the World Health Organisation standards for drinking water parameter which are the physical parameter, the chemical parameter and micro-biological parameter. Results showed that sample A did not meet the required drinking water quality standards for the physical and chemical parameter while all other water samples met the chemical parameter as they all fall within the permissible value of the W.H.O chemical standard. Also all the water sample did not meet the micro-biological W.H.O standard. The water samples were all contaminated with Aerobic mesophilic organism and coli form organism, Laboratory results also showed that in sample A,B,D aerobic mesophilic organism were too numerous to count. It was concluded that the study area has access to enough water quantity based on W.H.O standard It was recommended that NGOs/funding agencies should participate in development of improved water supply programmes and a lot of awareness creation activities should be done on sanitation and hygiene through extension workers.
