Abstract: Sachet water has become the predominant source of drinking water in many developing countries and the quality of water drinking should be constantly evaluated for sake of public health. The study was conducted to determine physicochemical parameters of six brands sachet water consumed in wukari, Taraba state Nigeria. The physicochemical results of analyzed water samples revealed that pH, Electrical conductivity, Total dissolved Solid, Turbidity, Dissolved Oxygen, Chloride and Nitrate ranged from 6.4-7.3, 299.86-473.7 µS/cm, 179.915-284.2 mg/L, 2.62-4.73 mg/L, 4.225-5.925 mg/L, 11.775-16.675 mg/L and 3.125-5.61 mg/L respectively, all the values of parameter obtained were within acceptable limits of WHO and NSDWQ for drinking water quality guidelines.
