This study consisted of the determination of the physiochemical properties of different types of untreated water in Dhulikhel area of Nepal. The aim was to ascertain the quality of river water, ground water and pond water. Only the concentration of chloride exceeded the permissible limits of the World Health Organization drinking water quality guidelines. The four out of five ponds had very low dissolved oxygen content. On an average, the water in this area was slightly polluted. A simple pre-treatment is enough to make the water potable.
