The pH, Iron and Lead levels in borehole water collected randomly from some selected borehole drinking water in Federal Government College (F.G.C ) Warri, Delta State, Nigeria was analysed.  It was compared with NAFDAC, WHO and NSDWQ standards for safe drinking water.  Experimental research design was used to collect and analyze five samples of untreated borehole drinking water all in Federal Government College, Warri.  pH was determined by Winlab Model 290A pH meter, iron and lead by Atomic Absorption Spectrometer (AAS) and addition of 5.0ml of concentrated HNO3. The result of the findings were compared with that of NAFDAC, WHO and NSDWQ recommended standard for safe drinking water which showed that all the samples of borehole waters are safe for consumption

Keywords: pH, Iron, Lead, borehole, drinking water.
