Measuring the Health Impact of Drinking Water Sources in El-Fashir, Sudan
Keywords:Water Quality, Drinking Water, TDS, Nitrate, Conductivity, Turbidity, Fluoride.
The study aimed to assess the physical and chemical condition of drinking water in El-fashir city, Sudan. The
parameters studied are; Electrical conductivity (EC), nitrates, pH, Total Dissolved Solid (TDS) and fluorine
were analyzed at water points and in the laboratory. Results were processed on SPSS software. The study
revealed the pH results, which were distributed between 6.8 to 8 for samples from hand pumps 1 and 2 and
tank water, respectively. The residual chlorine concentration (RC) in the water supply system of the selected
stations ranged between 0.2 to 0.6 mg /L. The concentration of nitrate level ranged from 3. 4.5 mg/L, which
is within the acceptable range of the standards for WHO and SSMO standards. The study also determined
the level of fluorine, which ranged between 0.17 - 0.41 mg/L, which is within the acceptable range of the
standards for WHO and SSMO standards. This study found that all results fall within the permissible limits
of the standards of WHO and SSMO standards except the hand pumps.
