Abstract: A total of sixty (60) samples from organized and unorganized sectors were collected in five different districts of the Brahmaputra Valley of Assam. Six (6) samples were collected each from organized and unorganized farms from one district. The water samples were assessed with the help of water testing kit (JalTara water testing kit-TARA life sustainability Solution Private Limited, New Delhi, India). The physical parameter such as temperature and turbidity was in the range of 16.15-18.88oC and 0.68-1.41 NTU respectively. These physical parameters were within the permissible limit set by WHO, 2011. The result of microbiological quality of the samples showed that out of 60, only 7 samples indicated the presence of coliform organism in it. It may be concluded that the water samples of both organized and unorganized sectors in terms of physical and microbiological quality were found safe except seven samples which were found to have coliform organisms in it.
