The study of the physico-chemical analysis of the water from different sources in the Greater Port Harcourt Areas of Igwuruta, Omagwa and Isiokpo in Rivers State Nigeria has been carried out. The study involved twenty (20) water samples randomly collected from twenty different points from five (5) different water sources of pond, borehole, well, stream and river distributed in the three (3) different towns. The Samples were carefully analyzed using standard method for eleven (11) parameters of physico-chemical qualities. Results shows that borehole water, BWIG1 record pH value of 5.25, BWIG3 recorded 5.92 and well water, WWI18 had 7.67. in Electrical conductivity, pond water PWO13 expressed value 1195s/cm and Well water WWIG4 recorded 77s/cm. In total dissolved Solid (TDS), PWO13 showed value of 867 (mg/L) and BWO9 had a value of 189 (mg/L). In terms of dissolved oxygen BWO9 and BWI16 had value of 7.80ppm respectively and RWI20 value was 2.60ppm. comparatively, the borehole Samples expressed values which makes them more desirable than others in presence of poor water management.
