Parameters including chlorine residue and pH were determined and microbial analyzes were also done. Possible effects on health and the properties of bulk water were questioned from users through the questionnaire.

Results: The amount of residual chlorine and pH were in the range of 0.2-0.5mgL-1 and 6.74-7.40, respectively. The averageof residual chlorine and pH were 0.235±0.097 and 6.88±0.14, respectively. None of the specimens tested for coliform bacteria contamination was seen.
