Abstract: The primary purpose for the analysis of the Haina Well water was to determine the presence or absence of human enteric viruses in the well water. Since coliform bacteria is currently the only indicator bacteria required by law to assess the hygienic quality of water, the total coliform and fecal coliform contents of the well water were tested. In addition, the water was also tested for fecal streptococcus, the most used alternative indicator of water quality, and for Clostridium perfringens, the most stable of the proposed indicator bacteria. Finally, as a check on the overall quality of the well water, selected chemical analyses of the water were also done.
