In our paper we have analyzed the quality of drinking water in the rural area of the city of Prizren, rural areas are supplied by forty underground wells of the city. Where the production capacity is around 850 l/sec where about 60% of the city is supplied by pumps, 40% by gravity. The distribution network of drinking water pipes in contrast to the urban area which is from the sixties, in rural areas the distribution network is from the nineties, the composition of the distribution pipes is made of polyethylene materials, the distribution network is always attacked by illegal connections that can be sources of drinking water pollution this has also been the reason that pushed me to do this research. The biggest problem in protecting the quality of groundwater and surface water are industrial discharges, the close presence of stables, communal services, rainfall, outdated distribution network, illegal network connections.The purpose of this paper is for us to know the quality of drinking water in the rural area of the city and from the analysis made it results that the quality of drinking water is 99% in accordance with normal values for drinking water. We checked the water quality in the March 2019 time interval at four sampling sites (Krua) in the rural suburban area of the city.
