In order to understand the sanitation condition of drinking water in the rural areas of High-tech District in Tai’an
City, and to provide scientific bases for drinking water quality improvement and public health protection, water
quality was tested and analyzed using the methods recommended in the China national health standard
GB5750-85, which included 14 indicators, i.e. sensory characteristics, general chemical indicators, toxicological
indicators and bacteriological indicators. The results showed that the contents of total coliform, ammonia
nitrogen and iron exceeded the standards, and the contents of volatile phenol and Cr (VI), and the total hardness
slightly exceeded the standards. It was concluded that drinking water, especially well water in the rural areas of
High-tech District in Tai’an City was slightly polluted. Therefore, currently the related government departments
should focus on strengthening “the three wastes” treatment and sanitation management of drinking water
transmission, and providing additional water disinfection facilities.
