Abstract : Abstract. The study concerned with the assessment of quality characteristics of drinking water offered to primary school students in Jeddah city as regards the chemical aspect. Primary schools include students highly susceptible to environmental pollution due to their low awareness concerning the surrounding environmental risks. The researchers developed a questionnaire distributed to all primary schools. In the light of the questionnaire, as well levels of underground water, the researchers selected 30 primary schools for chemical examinations of drinking water. The selected schools were distributed between the north and south of Jeddah equally. Drinking water samples were taken at three times after stagnating in tanks as follows; in summer, after weekend, and after the end of Ramadan Holiday. The levels of the total dissolved metals (aluminum, iron, manganese, copper, nickel and zinc) were measured. All of them were in the permissible levels locally and internationally except for nickel. This might be due to the water distribution net and/ or the increasing level of underground water.
