water quality, deep wells
Water is one of the most important substances on earth, especially to people. It is essential for a man’s life to function properly. However, water quality must be assessed to ensure its safety. Bacoor City, having a large number of populations in Cavite is known for its river, the Zapote River System. Unfortunately, people have been throwing garbage to the said river, resulting to the pollution of water sources, including deep wells. This descriptive-comparative study aims to determine and compare the water quality of the three selected deep wells. Through snowball sampling, (referred by the Municipal of Bacoor City) the barangays referred were: Mabolo 1, Mabolo 2, and Dulong Bayan. The samples gathered by the researchers were brought to the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) laboratory for analyzation and interpretation of properties―physicochemical and bacteriological. Results obtained were compared to the Philippine National Standards for Drinking Water (PNSDW) standard. Consequently, Mabolo 1 is the only barangay that met the seven standards on water quality. Subsequently, Mabolo 2 was able to fit the standards of four out of seven properties of water. Lastly, Dulong Bayan attained the lowest count, for it only passed three standards out of the seven properties of water.
