Odey Emmanuel Alepu, Giwa Abdulmoseen Segun and Harrison Odion Ikhumhen

This study briefly discussed water hygiene condition in Rural Bekwarra Community. Based on the 5 selected parameters for the experiments, results showed that average permeate Fluoride was 1.6 mg/L, pH of 7.8, average Iron (Fe+3) of 0.7 mg/L, Lead (Pb) of 0.02 mg/L, and Total Dissolved Solids of 578 mg/L. From the results, it showed that only pH had average value within the standard requirement for drinkable water in Nigeria. Thus, there is a considerable need for the treatment and recycling of borehole water in the community before use.
