Ogbonna, F. Joel
Amajuoyi, C. A.
Many people especially in developing countries lack access to safe drinking water. This work was undertaken to provide prudent treatment technique for provision of safe drinking water. For effective safe water management, considerations should be given to storage vessels, pretreatment and final purification protocol adopted Results of physicochemical and microbiological quality of the water from experimental set up of treatment procedure used indicated an enhanced water quality with a reduction of Total heterotrophic count from 3.0 × 103cfu/ml to 4.0 × 101cfu/ml, Total Coliforms for 1.0 × 102 to 0cfu/100ml, fecal Conforms from 4.0 cfu/100ml to 0cfu/100ml, Salmonella sp from 26.0cfu/ml to 0cfu/ml, Shigella sp from 26.0cfu/ml to 0cfu/ml The treatment set up adopted in this work is therefore effective in enhancing water quality for safe drinking and will be useful in solving the perennial water problem which has plagued many developing countries with diseases.
