The paper reports drinking water quality from three inter colleges and two degree colleges of Sambhal municipality. The quality of drinking water samples were assessed by examining various physico-chemical and biological parameters viz, colour, odour, taste, turbidity, pH, specific conductivity, total dissolved solids, total hardness,  chloride, fluoride, sulphate, nitrate, calcium, magnesium, dissolved oxygen (DO) and total coliforms. The analytical results were compared with drinking water standard (BIS-10500) prescribed by Bureau of Indian Standard, New Delhi. The water quality in general found to be satisfactory but the level of total hardness, chloride, nitrate, and magnesium were slightly higher at some locations and coliforms contamination was also found in some of drinking water samples.
