This study is a preliminary study to first of all establish
a working basis for assessment of water quality. It involves
an evaluation of randomly selected sample of twenty brands
from different producers at three(3) interval of time within
the sampling months ( i.e the three samples constitute a
batch No. for that producer). Summarized results of the 3
samples for each producer were presented as a batch in the
table I and II. Key parameters for physico-chemical analysis
and bacteriological examination of the ‘Pure water’ samples
were determined to find out the wholesomeness of the
water. During the course of the study, visits were made to
two of the producers to see their outfit production process
and recognise potential pitfalls that might contaminate the
‘Pure water’ products.
