1.1 PHYSIOCHEMICAL OF PORTABLE WATER
Potable water also refers to drinking water that is safe enough to be consumed by human or used without risk of immediate or long term harm. In most developed countries, the water supplied to households, commerce and industry meet drinking water standards, even though only a very small proportion is actually consumed in food preparation. Typical uses of water include toilet flushing, washing and landscape irrigation.
Over large part of the world, human have inadequate access to potable water and use sources that are contaminated with disease vectors, pathogen or unacceptable level of toxin or suspended solids. Drinking or using such water in food preparation leads to chronic illness and is a major cause of death and misery in many countries.
Water has always been an important and life-sustaining drink to humans and is essential to the survival of all known organisms. Excluding fat, water composes approximately 70% of the human body by mass. It is a crucial component of metabolic processes and serves as a solvent for many bodily solutes.
The availability of supply of water is one of the most important parts of human health, with the supply of clean drinking water being a multibillion dollar industry. In the course of discussion, concentration would be on potable water determination process and illustrates the link between raw water quality and treatment process, selection and performance.
Subsequent chapter would concentrate on specific water treatment processes, detailing the chemical and engineering principles behind the process and further illustrating process implementation by the use of process flow diagram at the removal of organic and inorganic concentrates and at the treatment and disposal of sludge.
Good drinking water quality is essential for the wellbeing of all people. Unfortunately, in many countries around the world, some drinking water supplies have become contaminated, which has impacted on the health and economic status of the population. Even if no source of anthropogenic contamination exists, there is potential for natural levels of metals, and other chemical that are harmful to human health.
This was highlighted recently in Felele, where natural levels of arsenic in groundwater were found to be causing harmful effects on the population. Unfortunately, this problem arose because the groundwater was extracted for drinking without a detailed chemical investigation. The natural water analyses for physical and chemical properties are very important for public health studies.
These studies are also main part of pollution studies in the environment. According to literature reviews, there has been no published report concerning possible contaminants in drinking water sources in these communities.
A wide range of pollutants such as heavy metals, nitrate, chlorinate hydro carbons, phenol, cyanide pesticide, inorganic pollutants, radioactivity and bacteria have been reported by many researchers in different regions.
1.2 OBJECTIVE OF THE STUDY
In this study, concentration of Manganese, Calcium, Sodium, Magnesium and Iron in drinking water samples from water sources in Felele community were determined. Some physical and chemical properties of the samples were also determined by using standard analytical method.
