The results of analysis of laboratory Depkes indicate thet the mean of resident well contain 1295 cell Coliform and 960 cell Escherichia coli per 100 ml irrigate the sample of this means exceeding rule specified by regulation of Menkes RI. No. 416/MENKES/PER/IX/1990 of concerning clean water quality conditions manely 50 and 10 cell Coliform to irrigate non pipe and irrigate the pipe. So that the water cannot be properly consumed.
