The quality of water, whether used for drinking, domestic purposes, food production or recreational purposes has an important impact on health. Water of poor quality can cause disease outbreaks and it can contribute to background rates of disease manifesting themselves on different time scales. Initiatives to manage the safety of water do not only support public health, but often promote socioeconomic development and well-being as well. (WHO, 2013; Liu et al., 2012). Millions of people are exposed to dangerous levels of microbiological contaminants in their drinking-water due to inadequate management of urban, industrial or agricultural wastewater (Flanagan et. al., 2012; Steinmann et al., 2006; Shuval H. 2003). This research aims to make an assessment of drinking water quality in Lezha Region. Lezha region is a tourist destination for its coast during the months of May ? September for the northern Albania. It is a descriptive and analytic study, a retrospective one. There is a data collection of the results from drinking water samples analyzing for microbiological contaminants (Total Coliforme), with Multiple tube (most probable number) method. Study and analyzing all the data and comparing them for the period 2006-2013 in order to see the trend of the pollution level of the drinking water.
