The service level delivery of municipal water supply and private groundwater sources in Olodi-Apapa, Lagos was evaluated. Reconnaissance survey, co-ordinates and heights above sea level of water sample points were obtained. Structured questionnaires retrieved from two hundred and forty seven (247) inhabitants (98.8%) were analyzed. The result shows a low income area with 72.9% in room apartments, 90.3% uses untreated water supply, with only 6.5% from the municipal source, while private borehole and well accounts for 55.8% and 37.7% respectively. Use of generating set for water abstraction was by 77.3%, while 93.5% do not have access to public water supply, 100% of the sources have high calcium hardness and over 60% have high chloride content. Municipal micro water works limitations include expansion, electricity supply, and good network of public standing pipes.
