Abstract: Total 225 drinking water samples from hotels and restaurants in Amravati city were analyzed by standard MPN technique for determination of bacteriological quality and hygiene behaviors on quality deterioration of water. Out of these, 143 (63.5%) were non-potable and 82 (36.4%) potable by MPN test. Out of these 143 non-potable water samples, 86 (60.1%) were confirmed faecal contaminated by Eijkman test. Study showed that highest contamination recorded in roadside hotels and dhaba`s (83.3%). The 83.3% contamination was recorded in drinking water stored in containers without tap and 100% where drinking water withdrawn directly by dipping hands or utensil without handle. The hygiene behaviors such as the frequency of washing of storage container, hygienic condition of hotels/ restaurants owners and workers, uniform of worker, number of customer per day, health education of workers and owners also affect the potability of drinking water in hotel and restaurants.
