The main objective of these study was to investigate the effect of sitting bore (drinking water source), and soakaway system within the same area in close proximity (distance) to each other on the quality of the ground water. To achieve the purpose of this study, a Null and Alternate Hypothesis were formulated to guide the research process: The hypothesis was tested at 0.05 level of significance with relative degree of freedom, whereby all p- values less than 0.05 was considered statistically significant, thereby rejecting the null hypothesis, while those greater than the p- value as non-significant. Therefore, sitting borehole close to any pollution source (soakaway) was very detrimental to the quality of the ground water.
