Drink is a vital necessity for human life. In 2007 and 2009, MDG's report the source of drinking water obtained from water piping, non water piping and other protected resources. Based on Basic Health Research (Riskesdas) 20IO, around 29.28% of drinking water sources for Jakarta area obtained from unprotected-non piping water (river, water refills, unprotected wells, unprotected springs), 18.29% from protected piping water (tap water, piped water), 52.43% from protected-non piping water (well pumps, protected wells and springs, rain, bottled water). The most widely used resources for drinking water in Jakarta area are well pumps. Based on 2002 Kepmenkes, the healthy drinking water require bacteriological criteria. The maximum content of coliform allowed for drinking water is 0/100 ml. The research was conducted on 2005 at Cilandak in South Jakarta using cross sectional method. Samples were collected from 30 different residential well pumps with varying depth from 2-15 meters. The samples were divided into 2 groups based on the depth of well pumps. Group 1 is taken from 0-9.9 meter depth and group 2 taken from 10-15 meter depth. Samples were tested with MPN (Most Probable Number) to determine the number of coliform bacteria. From 30 samples, 46.67% showed positive coliform. The presence of coliform was found in 13 of 24 samples in group 1 (54.17%) with varying number of colonies (4-540 colonies/100 ml). In group 2, one of 6 samples showed positive coliform (16.67%) with 7.8 colonies/1OO ml. The result indicated that coliform bacteria still found in well pumps water used by public in South Jakarta as a source of drinking water. Suggestion : Water taken from less than 15 meter well pumps should not be used as source of drinking water.
