|Abstract:||Inaccessibility to drinking water is an intractable growing problem in developing countries such as Nigeria. This paper, presents the energy and manpower input resources needed to increase water accessibility and guarantee sustainable profitable operations. The work relied on detailed questionnaire administration for data collection from water packaging factories within Nsukka and Enugu Cities. The data were collated and Project Evaluation Review Technique (PERT) was used to determine the amount of energy needed. A profit profile was determined for both sachet and bottle water products. The gross energy sequestered by the packaging process is 87.8J for sachet water and 0.52 MJ for bottle water with average of 10 workforces. Also, optimal production rates of 1658 and 1551 were determined for sachet and bottle water, respectively at a profit of N 291,428.29 per day. The results have significant implications for Nigeria’s millennium development goals target for water in 2015.|
