The ground water quality of Mubi Town in Mubi North Local Government Area of Adamawa State was studied to examine the suitability or otherwise of their use of the groundwater for drinking and domestic purposes. Ten ground water samples from boreholes and dug wells were randomly collected each during raining seasons in the months of June, July and August, 2007. The samples were analyzed with reference to the World Health Organization (WHO) standards and Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS). Physico-chemical parameters were studied and concentrations of heavy metals were determined. Results of the analyses revealed that the water samples were slightly acidic to slightly alkaline (near neutral) (pH 6.30±0.01 to 7.52±0.05), and that the water samples were good for drinking and domestic purposes.
Key words: Ground water, quality, Mubi, boreholes, dug wells.
