Abstract The aim of this study was to determine the physico-chemical and microbiological quality of drinking water quality in Shahrekord. For this purpose, 235 samples water from were taken either at the consumer's tap, or from well water. The analysis showed that concentration levels of total coliform bacteria (mean: 9±5 MPN/ 100 ml) exceeded the limits and F- (mean: 0.20±0.1mg/L) below the desirable limits of WHO and Iran in certain wells, while E.coli, pH, turbidity, total hardness, SO42- , Cl- , Mg2+, NO3 - , TDS, Ca2+, Sb, Se, V, Cr, Zn, As, Mo and Cu were well within the limits. Our results show that the physical and chemical quality of the waters of Shahrekord was high quality.
