Abstract


This study assesses the physicochemical and bacteriological quality of water from Buhama and Kalimbi springs in the health areas of Lemera and Kasheke in South Kivu from analyzes of the physicochemical and bacteriological properties of drinking water in these health areas. The results of physico-chemical analyze show that these waters, in general, are within the WHO recommended standards for drinking water. From the bacteriological point of view, it appears that some sites are polluted and carry germs that can harm the health of the population causing water-borne diseases. Thus, measures to combat this microbiological pollution aiming at setting up a committee supported by the political and administrative leaders for the management of water and the sensitization of the population on the water management and the water diseases must be taken before that the situation no longer becomes dangerous.

Abstract: (french)


Cette étude apprécie la qualité physico - chimique et bactériologique de l’eau des sources Buhama et Kalimbi dans les aires de santé de Lemera et Kasheke au Sud-Kivu à partir des analyses des propriétés physico-chimiques et bactériologiques de l’eau de boisson dans ces aires de santé. Les résultats des analyses physico-chimiques montrent que ces eaux, en général, sont dans les normes recommandées par l’OMS pour l’eau de boisson. Du point de vue bactériologique, il apparait que certains sites seraient pollués et sont porteurs des germes qui peuvent nuire à la santé de la population causant des maladies hydriques. Ainsi, les mesures de lutte contre cette pollution microbiologique visant à mettre en place un comité appuyé par les leaders politico-administratifs pour la gestion d’eau et la sensibilisation de la population sur la gestion d’eau et les maladies hydriques doivent être prises avant que la situation ne devienne plus dangereuse.
