Abstract

Physicochemical studies were carried out during September to October 2013 in order to estimate the quality of drinking water from various resources in different locations of Upper Dir and District Barawal. The result of water quality parameters were analyzed as per USP (United State Pharmacopeia), WHO and Pakistan Council of Research in water Resources (PCRWR) methods and defined standards. Majority of drinking water samples are free from contamination and the water is suitable for human and household consumption. However, there are evidences of contaminants in a few samples which indicate that the drinking water in the study area is facing strain which could change the quality of the water in the near future.

Keywords: Drinking Water Quality, Physicochemical studies etc.
