Disinfection is an important step in ensuring that water is safe to drink. Well disinfection is used to inactivate or control bacteria populations in a well and the distribution system. Disinfection is the inactivation or destruction of pathogenic organisms through the disruption of the organisms’ normal life processes. The objective of this work is to clean and-or disinfect entire borehole to prepare wells for pump installation. The last water sample was collected after the well disinfec-tion on that time. The results of water chemical analysis are presented in Tables 2-4, and there was nothing found against the specification requirements. After a reaction time of approximately 12 h, the well was cleaned from the sterilization solution by airlifting until chlorine concentration in the water reached 0 mg-l. Then through analyzing the test for samples of water after disinfection and sterilization the wells showed the Iron Bacteria were not seen and the Bacteria Species-Anaerobic Bacteria were absent.
