Attributes the observed reduction in water quality to urbanization pressure, age of piping, differences in pipe materials and distance from the treatment plant. The turbidity of some of the samples indicates the entry of foreign materials into the system and thus health hazards. Suggests some measures to ameliorate the situation.
