Abstract

Self-supply water source systems are still widely used in Indonesia, such as in Metro City, Lampung, where only 5,05% of households are served by piped drinking water services. Metro City is known to occupy the fourth position as an area that has clean water quality problems in Indonesia. Therefore, this study aims to determine the variability of the level of drinking water services that are perceived as safe by households perceptions of safety, taste, appearance, smell, reliability, and availability of drinking water sources. The method used is longitudinal monitoring of drinking water sources in households with monthly surveys. The monitoring results show that during the 6 months of the surveys Non-self-supply systems (n=147) are known to be safer than self-supply systems (n=115) with the percentage of 98% and 95%. The source of drinking water with the highest safety level is refill water and bottled water (100%) which is the most consistent level of safety. Thus, the results of this study are expected to increase public awareness and the local government concerned to obtain an equitable supply of safe drinking water.
