For retrospective survey until 2011-2013 years the standardized questionnaire was designed for interviewing peasants in the settlements (experimental group) and inhabitants of an industrial city Dnipropetrovsk (control group) - 90 respondents from each group. Information about quality of piped potable water that enters the building (apartment) were requested from the all questionnaires. The data obtained in the study showed low awareness among peasants contingents: 26.07 % of interviewing doesn’t consider quality of potable water is a hygienic problem; 22.26 % were not decided yet if they are satisfi ed with the quality of tap water. Therefore, 14.81 % of peasants were sure that they use poor quality potable water; 25.25 % of questionnaires associate poor quality of tap water mainly with rust and sediment, 19.57 % with turbidity (p < 0.001). After collecting questionnaires from 180 contingents (90 from experimental and 90 from control group) new data will be used for further scientifi c research in the fi eld of potable water supply and management decisions in order to improve quality of piped potable water in the peasants contingents, and introduction modern methods of purifi cation in the rural settlements, which are not covered by centralized water supply, mainly, from 5.8 % to 39 % peasants contingents in the region.
