Abstract: Some physicochemical parameters and heavy metals were investigated in water samples collected from selected boreholes in Wawa town for the purpose of ascertaining the water quality of the boreholes for drinking and other domestic purposes. Four selected boreholes were sampled three times each. The physicochemical parameters investigated are as follows; temperature, pH, electrical conductivity, alkalinity, turbidity, total dissolved solids and total hardness using standard methods. And from the results, the physicochemical parameters had mean values of 32.35±0.92 ºC, 7.06±0.18, 217.42±72.60 µS/cm, 140.25±23.00 mg/L, 0.94±0.23 NTU, 130.90±49.05 mg/L and 246.25±25.97 mg/L respectively. The results obtained were compared with the WHO [1] and NSDWQ [2] standards for drinking water and it was observed that majority of the physicochemical parameters had values which were within the maximum permissible limits.
