The water quality of wells in Los Banos was monitored during wet and dry seasons using the 65 and 54 samples collected, respectively. These samples were analyzed for the physico-chemical and microbiological parameters set by the DOH-Phil. National Standards for Drinking Water (DOH-PNSDW). Based on the results, during the wet season, only 20% of the wells were fit for drinking while for the dry season, only 12% of the samples wells were safe for human consumption.
