Abstract

The paper focuses on provision of sustainable portable water to Amaokpara community in Orumba Local Government Area of Anambra State, using “Decision Tree Analysis” which involves two options of water boreholes and odor stream harnessing. This is to achieve one of the key targets of millennium development goals by 2015, which is aimed at the proportion of people without sustainable access to safe drinking water and to ascertain the majority of premature deaths which is accounted by water related disease, in many cases could be alleviated by the provision of an adequate supply of water for both drinking and washing with full participation of the community.

Key words: Decision-tree, water supply, boreholes, stream, construction, production, maintenance, sustainability.
