Water not containing any sufficient quantity saline material and free from contaminants is fit for drinking and is regarded as a mineral water. A water is said to be portable which is without any hamful factor, but due to increase in urbanization , industries and interferance of human activities has lead to increase in water pollution level which causes water unfit for drinking to the human population and causes various harmful diseases. This paper includes the analysis of pHysico-chemical properties of drinking water like BOD, COD, Alkalinity ,hardness, chloride, pH and bacteriological examination of collected tap water from various sub regions of district Jalandhar. Various papers on water portability test by different researchers has also been summarized in this article which are helpful for further treatment of the water system.
