On the Cape Verde Islands drinking water investigations were made. The drinking water was tested in chemical and bacteriological respects as well as on amebas and rotaviruses. The isolated germs were investigated on their reaction against several antibiotics and chemotherapeutics by means of the agar diffusion test. The changing of drinking water quality from water-supply-places to the households was investigated as well. According to the fact, that only 10.6% of 207 public water supplies investigated show drinking water quality after ONORM, and that nearly 30% and 80.2% of them contained E. coli and coliforme germs respectively, the urgency of extensive sanitations of water supplies on the Cape Verde Islands is evident.
