Adherence to drinking water quality guidelines and practices has virtually eliminated diseases like typhoid fever and cholera in developed countries. Therefore, it becomes very necessary to reveal the microbial and nutrient status and causes of pollution in these mushrooming wells that are built in houses as they are very much susceptible to microbial and nutrients contamination from septic tanks. This study investigated the status of microbial and nutrient quality of domestic wells in the Urban West Region of Unguja. Specifically the study assessed the extent of coliform and nutrient contamination, the sources of contamination as well as seasonal and spatial variations of the contamination in domestic wells.
