The study revealed that most of the physiochemical water quality parameters of the water samples were within the standard values. Coliform count for all the water samples exceeded the standard values prescribed by Bangladesh Environment Conservation Rules 1997. The count for total Coliform of all the water samples ranged from 14 to 48 per 100mL and that for the Faecal Coliform ranged from 6 to 26 per 100mL. The overall study states that the municipal water supplied by DWASA at Sutrapur Thana in Dhaka is not safe at all for domestic use, particularly for drinking purposes, and consumption of this highly contaminated water may be the prime cause of the water borne health hazards suffered by the peoples of Sutrapur Thana.
