Abstract: The physical and chemical analysis of wells and borehole water collected from wells and boreholes in Tudun Salman und Unguwan Dawaki Ward Bauchi, were carried out using four wells sample and borehole sample in Tudun Salmanu then two samples from Unguwan Dawaki Ward, the temperature of water ranges from 27.6 to 27.7mg, PH value from 7.6 to 7.5 bicarbonate HOC3 range from 560.20 to 811.42mg chlorine range from 74.9 to 237.4mg calcium range from 49.95 to 57.63mg magnesium 5.83 to 10.15mg hardness as Ca, CO3 167.32 to 329.6mg the parameter determined were all within the acceptable limit as compared with WHO International standard for drinking water except for bicarbonate Lon which are high in the water sample analyzed indicating that much carbodioxide discovered in the water sample it is therefore recommended that wells should be lined within water tight concrete for at least 3.2 meters below the ground surface to prevent surface water and insufficiently filtered water from entering the well water should be used for cooking and drinking only when boiled and allowed to stand for the suspend particles to settle out.
