This research work was conducted to determine the levels of some physical-chemical parameters of the water bodies in Basirka located in Gwaram LGA, Jigawa state Nigeria. The main aim of this research was to find out the suitability of the water bodies for drinking, and domestic purposes. Water samples were collected in November 2019 at three sampling sites and were analyzed for various physicochemical parameters such as temperature, PH, Electrical Conductivity, Total dissolved solids (TDS), Dissolve Oxygen and alkalinity. The study showed that the mean value of studied parameters, except dissolved oxygen in all the sites, all the parameters measured were within the permissible limit of NSDWQ, (2007) and WHO, (2017) for drinking water. Therefore, the water was found to be fit for human consumption and was found to be safe and utilizable for domestic purposes.
