Abstract:

The aim of this study is to assess the physico-chemical and microbiological quality of water packaged in an industrial way and those packaged in a traditional way in order to understand the risks of exposure of the consumer population. To achieve this objective, a survey was carried out among 600 people. 270 samples of bagged water were collected in seven localities in Côte d'Ivoire. Then, physico-chemical and microbiological analyses of the samples were carried out to determine the quality of the water. It emerges from this work that the majority of the pH of the water packaged in bags in these localities are acidic. The temperatures of the packaged waters vary between 13.6 and 22.6°C. The levels of residual chlorine recorded in the conditioned waters of the cities studied do not comply with the limit value recommended by the WHO, which is around 0.2 mg/L. Concerning the microbiological quality of the bagged water, the analyses revealed the presence of mesophilic aerobic germs, Total Coliforms and Escherichia Coli. Waters packaged in an artisanal and industrial way are not of good quality from a bacteriological point of view.
