Abstract


Meeting domestic water requirements has been a very big problem to urban planners. To evaluate the pattern of water supply and use in households in the study area, systematic random sampling technique was used to select the households that were interviewed. Survey questionnaires were employed with which data on water-use characteristics of the respondent households were obtained. A total of 250 households selected at random sampled, and the data obtained were presented in frequency distribution tables, bar charts, pie charts and graphs. The hypothesis formulated were tested using chi-square (x2) test for the goodness of fit. The gross inefficiency in domestic water-use observed among residents in the study area requires that government and NGOs make provision for water to augment the efforts of the private sector, promote sanitation and enforce conservation if water-use is monitored.
