Quality of water is an important criterion for evaluating the suitability of water for Drinking and Domestic purpose. The ground water samples were collected and subjected for a comprehensive physico–chemical analysis. The following 21 parameters have been considered viz. pH, Electrical Conductivity, Alkalinity, Total hardness, Total Dissolved Solids, dissolved oxygen, Turbidity, Biological Oxygen Demand, Chemical Oxygen Demand, calcium, magnesium, fluorides, sulphate, chloride, nitrate, and iron, on comparing the results against drinking quality standards laid by World Health Organization. The data revealed considerable variations in the water sample. The study showed significantly increase in the TDS, Electrical conductivity & Total Hardness. Deterioting the water quality, consequently consumption of polluted water puts livehoods at risk. More over this study may help other regions in understanding the potential threats to their ground water resources.
Keywords- Biological Oxygen Demand, Ground water samples, Total Dissolved Solids, Total hardness
