Abstract: ABSTRACT The effort of this research is to access the status of household drinking water supply and sanitation services in Ambo town. The major factors attributed to lower accessibility are shortage of water supply, high cost of piped water connection, length of process during connection and frequent interruption. The town has no sewerage system; no adequate and safe waste disposal sites. Further the municipality has no waste collection and disposal trucks. As result liquid wastes are released to rivers, ditches and on open spaces. These acts have seriously contributed to health, socioeconomic and environmental pollution. Community participation in water supply and sanitation is inadequate due to the weakness of offices or authorities particularly municipality in coordinating and promoting active community participation.
