Abstract: Domestic water in the D/line area of Port Harcourt was assessed for portability by analysing water samples from four selected bore holes chosen at random to see how safe they are drinking. Results obtained from this study compared well with permissible limits for safe drinking water as provided by NAFDAC, SON, and WHO. Results also showed pH values ranging from 3.5 – 5.7, for total alkalinity range within 16mg/l – 20mg/l. Total dissolves solids from 0.08mg/l – 1.20mg/l. Total hardness range between 9mg/l and 17mg/l while calcium hardness range between 6mg/l and 11mg/l. All the samples from B1 – B4 were slightly acidic. The study showed that water from these bore holes did not meet the standard parameters for safe drinking water. It is therefore recommended that in future studies boles in the area should be monitored and further treated to avoid break out of disease epidemic within the study area.
