Abstract:
Chittagong Water Supply and Sewerage Authority (CWASA) of Bangladesh is supplying water to the Chittagong city dwellers through its distribution network after proper treatment of water drawn from the Halda River and groundwater source. But the quality of water is at risk to deteriorate during its flow through the distribution system as regular monitoring of the distribution network is not usually done. In order to identify such water contamination problems, water samples from different locations of the four routes of the distribution network of CWASA were analyzed in this study. The study revealed that most of the important water quality parameters except BOD 5 were in the permissible limit. More than 95% of the collected water samples had BOD 5 greater than 0.20ppm with maximum of those found 5.2ppm at a house connection near Polytechnic College. Microbial water quality parameters examined at some selected locations showed the presence of pathogenic organisms in water exceeding the permissible limit. Few sources of contamination along the CWASA's distribution network have been identified. In order to avoid water contamination problems, awareness raising and regular monitoring of water distribution network have been suggested in this study. © 2006-2009 Asian Research Publishing Network (ARPN).
