The main purpose of the study was to assess the water coming to the consumer from the sources of centralized and non-centralized water supply in different parts of the Peninsula and used by the population of the Republic of Crimea for drinking purposes, in terms of their physiological value, with the identification of possible risks to public health. Outdated equipment and methods of treatment of water treatment plants do not provide the necessary level of quality of drinking water. Residents of many settlements are forced to use water from underground sources, especially in the steppe and Northern Crimea, with increased mineralization (up to 2 g/dm3 and more) and hardness. To achieve this goal, water samples were taken from different water sources (tap water, wells, wells) covering the South-Eastern part of the Peninsula, their chemical composition was determined, as well as a comparative analysis of the obtained salt composition of water to assess their physiological usefulness and compliance with sanitary and hygienic standards. The discrepancy of physiological fullness and sanitary and hygienic standards on mineral composition was established. The content of calcium, potassium and sodium in the test waters are acceptable. To ensure the full value of water it is necessary to conduct additional water treatment, as water of inadequate quality has a negative impact on human health.
