The relationship between water and health.

The provision of clean and potable water to inhabitants of Halls of Residence in the University of Ibadan, southwestern Nigeria has been a major challenge. Also maintaining the integrity of the storage and distribution channels of the water which has hitherto been treated becomes pertinent. The objective of this study was to assess the physical, chemical and microbial profile of water from the treatment plant to the Halls (New PG). Investigating of water quality variations and re-contamination due to failure of the distribution and storage systems was done. Water samples were collected for 12 weeks at 2 weeks interval. Water quality parameters were determined following standard procedures as enshrined in American Public Health Association (APHA).
