Water conservation is closely related to sustainable development, which has emerged as the development paradigm of this decade. Access to safe drinking water is vital for the promotion and strengthening of public health and also a basic human right. The stipulation of safe water prevents the diffusion of waterborne pathogens and reduces the exposure of individuals to chemical and material hazards that could be ingested through unhygienic and infected drinking water. The present study attempts to examine the critical assessment of safe drinking water consumed by the people in Jorhat district and its impact on the human health. To fulfill the purpose five villages have been selected and studied.
