This book is an MSc research thesis titled; Assessment of the chemical quality of groundwater for drinking, which was carried out in the Kachindamoto Traditional Authority area of Dedza District in Malawi. The area was ideal for such a study because of the reported saline water which was being used in the surrounding areas. Government’s efforts to achieve the millennium development goal of halving the proportion of the population without access to safe drinking water has concentrated on construction of boreholes in rural areas on of Malawi where over 80% of the population live. There are no accredited water supply utilities which are treating the water before it is supplied. As such an assessment of the chemical quality of the water that is being used from these boreholes is necessary in order to determine how safe it is for drinking and other domestic uses. This book is good for scholars in the area of water resources management, hydrochemistry, hydrogeology and it is also appropriate for civil society groups who are trying to help people in the rural areas especially giving them water for domestic use and sanitation, government when it is trying to invest in water resources.
