Around the world, water is considered a fundamental factor, and plays a role in public health and economic growth. Both the water development rates and the proportion of the population are directly related to water needs. Water quality regarding physiochemistry and microbiology is important in dietary needs. Drinking water is considered one of the most important food products. Therefore, the water should meet the recommended quality standards. So, it should be free of bacteria, parasites, all kinds of microorganisms, and chemical substances which are dangerous to human health. This research focused on five cities of the Alkalaa Municipal Community, which forms 43% of the inhabitants of this community, in the Bint Jbeil district south of Lebanon. The goal of this study is to determine the fundamental physicochemical and microbiological water properties of eight distinct sites, as well as the amount of pollution. These tests were carried out in accordance with World Health Organization criteria (WHO). The collected data were utilized to assess the level of pollution in the examined zone.
