The importance of this study emerges from the recently increasing consumption of such waters at the study area. The present study aims to assess the quality of (R.O.) drinking water selling at Basra City, Iraq. The measuring included the salinity concentration of studied water samples, based on both the electrical conductivity (EC) and total dissolved solids (TDS). Forty-eight samples were collecting from different R.O. water supply stations distributed on 12 residential districts within Basra City. Laboratory testing had shown that there are insignificant variations in the levels of salinity for studied water samples. Despite the salinity concentrations for these water samples were in agreement with the WHO recommended standards, the growing consumption of R.O. waters is not be safe ever.
