A study of water quality characteristics of water samples of 39 villages of Kalol taluka in Gandhinagar district of Gujarat state, India have been carried out during May-2006.The experimental values of various water quality characteristics of water samples were compared with standard value prescribed by World Health Organization(WHO) for drinking purpose. Quality of water also checked for irrigation purpose according to classification made by United State Salinity Laboratory. The statistical analysis [mean, standard deviation (SD), coefficient of variance (%CV), correlation of coefficient (r) and regression study] of water quality characteristics have also been carried out. Results show that water samples of Aluva and Jethlaj villages have exceed values of fluoride content with compare to WHO standards. 25.64% water samples of Kalol taluka fall in poor category for irrigation purpose. Out of 105 pairs 67 pairs of water quality characteristics bear positive correlation. The linear relation also established for each pair of water quality characteristics of studied water samples.
