In this write up, the characteristics and role of the informal water supply sector in the provision of water services in Idah Town Nigeria have been researched, assessed and presented. The assessment has revealed that there are three major classes of the informal sector involved in water services provision namely; the water supply tankers, sachet water producers and the water borehole shops. The study has shown that much needed to be done by way of regulation to improve not only the quality of service delivery but also the quality of the commodity; that is; water in order to achieve satisfactory water services in Idah in the bid to attain the global feat of improved water supply.
