The study aims to find out the quality of drinking water at household level in Jaipur city of Rajasthan. In, Jaipur the main source of water supply is ground water. It is either supplied by the piped line by the Public Health and Engineering Department (PHED) or the households have their own personal bore-wells at their premises. For the study, 20 samples were collected from 10 randomly selected wards; one each from bore-well and piped water supply. Samples of water were collected from households for physic-chemical and E-coli analysis. The quality of water was compared with Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) norms of potable water. Results revealed that water samples did not fully meet the BIS norms of potable water. The samples of bore-wells were worse in quality than piped water supply. Fluoride and nitrates were found in private bore-well samples. Drinking water was contaminated with E-coli in both types of sources. The study concluded that in order to get quality of potable water at household level, water treatment is necessary.
