Abstract: Insukamini catchment depends on hand dug wells, sand water abstraction, dam, and borehole water sources for their domestic uses. On hand dug wells and sand water abstraction, people rely on natural filtration of bacteria and consider the water as safe, however the location and management of some of these water sources raise suspicion of possible contamination. The aim of this study was to assess drinking water quality in terms of selected physico-chemical and microbiological parameters, and people
