Water quality comprises of knowing the Geology and hydrogeology and environmental of the area of interest. In studying the Geology of an area one has to know the different rock types that bear the water in that area and the structures associated with it. Hydrogeology is area of geology that deals with the distribution and movement of groundwater in the soil and rocks of the earth's crust. It deals with flow of water through aquifers and other shallow porous media. The main aims and objectives of the study are as follows; 1. Determine the ground water quality in the boreholes and hand dug wells in the area and its suitability for domestic and agricultural uses. 2.
