Availability of a healthy consumable water decrease during time. This is mainly due to the presence of pollutants which degrade the ground water quality. Many of the pollutant sources are produced by human activities such as household wastes. Other main pollutant sources are agricultural and industrial wastes. One of the most concerns regard the drinking water quality is the presence of the pathogenic microorganism such as Escherichia coli. If consumed, Escherichia coli can cause diarrhea which could lead to severe stomach ache. Many approaches can be applied to disinfect the drinking water to eliminate the Escherichia coli. In this paper, discussed water treatment by using plasma generated by tesla transformer to disinfect the water thus eliminate the Escherichia coli. A prototype of the water treatment system is built by using a Tesla transformer to produce high voltage thus generate plasma which then used to kill the Escherichia coli bacteria. It is found that the system is able to eliminate the Escherichia coli bacteria when the water is treated for 60 minutes. The water quality is not affected by the treatment process. The water pH is in the range of 6.5-8.5, which is still meet the standard. Water TDS is slightly increase, but also still in the range acceptable i.e. below 500 ppm.
