Abstract

Water is an important element for human survival, clean water, and potable water are two things that are not the same but often exchanged. Not all clean water is drinkable, but drinking water is usually from clean water. This study aims to explore the behavior of the community to consume drinking water from a spring source without being cooked in Alitta Village, Mattiro Bulu District, Pinrang Regency. This study uses a qualitative method with a phenomenological approach. The data collection techniques used are in-depth interviews. The results showed that the attitude of the community was still using protected springs as a source of drinking water even though it was not treated first, the tendency of people to be happy or like to drink water without processing, this was caused by taste factors and the threat of a disease was almost invisible the problem does not need to be taken seriously. This habit has the support of the surrounding community including community leaders, the existence of equality of behavior and the mechanism of control and social sanctions that have not been formed so that the behavior is considered natural. As well as the convenience that supports and strengthens the obstacles possessed such as time, energy, and costs so that people are still encouraged to consume drinking water without being processed first.For this reason,the role of health workers is needed to build an understanding of the community and periodically monitor the quality of drinking water
