It is presented as a result of a research that was carried out in Gardo district, in Somalia. The study was carried out basing on three specific objectives, i.e. ; to establish access domestic water sources in Gardo district ; to establish the challenges faced by local community in methods of getting safe domestic water ; and to examine the relationship between management of water sources and the supply of safe domestic water to households in Gardo district. The study was in form of a descriptive and comparative survey design, to describe and analyze the condition of the areas being studied as it was at the time. The study population comprised of 170 people from which a study sample of 120 respondents was chosen, using simple random and purposive sampling methods.

The findings of the study revealed that the main sources of water in Gardo district were ; boreholes, piped water taps, shallow wells and rain water, in their order of significance. Also that the challenges of safe water supply included inadequate water supply, breakdown of the piped water system, inter-clan/tribal clashes over control of water sources, prolonged drought/irregular rains and water contamination. The findings indicated that there was a relationship between the management of water sources and the supply of safe domestic water in Gardo district, in Somalia.
