    Author(s): Ejara Garadew* and Brook Abate

    The aim of this study was to examine the physicochemical and microbiological status of water quality from households tap, water source and reservoir in Enchini town. To achieve this objective water samples were collected from seven households tap, two sources (one spring and one borehole), and a reservoir. All samples were analyzed for Physico chemical and bacteriological water quality parameters by using standard procedures. The results show that pH, turbidity, total dissolved solid, electrical conductivity, residual chlorine, chloride of the water were ranges from 6.94-7.35,0.08-0.97 NTU,149 ppm to 343 ppm,297 μS/cm to 345 μS/cm, nill and 1.75 mg/l to 4.69 mg/l respectively. Phosphate, magnesium, calcium, nitrate, sulfate and fluoride of the water sample were also ranges between 0.18 mg/l to 0.635 mg/l, 24 mg/l to 84 mg/l, l10 mg/l to 319 mg/l ,1.4 mg/l to 3 mg/l, nill and nil..
