    The spatial distribution of metals in the water for consumption in the different supply sources, natural sources, family storage tanks and deep wells were studied. 16 samples were made for different municipalities belonging to the department of La Guajira upper part. The water samples were analyzed in 2016 and analyzed physically and chemically and microbiologically. The results were compared with national standards and those established by the WHO. The results found show some traces of metals in some of the sampling sites. The concentrations of Calcium, Magnesium exceeded the concentrations established by the standards. The results reinforce the need for better control of the physicochemical and microbiological parameters of the water consumed by the population.
