Clean water access for drinking water is a basic human right. However, at present, about 1.9 million children die, 20% from diarrheal disease per year. In the world, 4 person dies from water-related disease every minute (UNICEF 2005). Most of the water have untreated human sewage and agricultural activities have caused severe surface water contaminations. At the same time, other sources of fresh water are unreliable for drinking. Ground water is acidic due to the soil conditions and iron leaching, rain water from water shed also contain some chemical or poison material and water supply ftgm private vendors also faced some problem in order to get safe drinking water for people. Using both primary and secondary data from water sample , this study analyzes the effectiveness of the aeration and ultra-filtration process to treated water. From the result before and after treated, the process show its effectve in order to remove color units and turbidity value to comply drinking water standard by The National Safe Drinking Water Standard (SDWA). This can be another method to treated water in order to provide safe drinking water to people usage.
