Abstract:
The people of Azad Kashmir in general and mountain dwellers in particular drink water from fresh springs. The objective of the present study was to assess the suitability of spring water for drinking purposes for which the samples were collected from different springs and analyzed for the bacterial presence by multiple tube and colony count method. The study reveals that springs are also contaminated with microorganisms. The presence of Conforms, E. Coli, Streplococus, Laclobacillus and Shigella in the most of the samples did not confirm the suitability of water for drinking purposes.
