Abstract

Maoa (Zafar) village near Dhamar. Dhamar is a city in south western Yemen. It is situated 100 Km to the south of Sana'a (capital of Yemen) 2700 m above sea level.

Maoa (Zafar) residents complain the prevalence of colon cancer and drinking water may be is the reason, where drinking water samples are not treated before it is consumed. This study consisted of the determination of the trace metals and some physical and chemical parameters in drinking water samples from the Zafar village, Dhamar governorate.
