Abstract

Water is one of the abundantly available substances in nature and also called “ Elixir of Life”. Water plays a vital role in the wealth of a nation, particularly like India, which is predominantly an agrarian economy. The importance of water for the existence of life need not be over emphasized. Quality of water is an important criterion for evaluating the suitability of water for drinking and irrigation. The ground water samples were collected and subjected for a comprehensive physico- chemical analysis. The following 10 parameters have been considered viz. pH, electrical conductivity, color, odour, appearance, Ammonia, Dissolved Oxygen, chloride, nitrate, Iron. Comparing the results with drinking water standards laid by WHO, it was found that some of the parameters were above the permissible limit and some were not. Moreover this study may help other regions in understanding the potential threats to their ground water resources.
