Eighteen samples are analysed for twelve physico-chemical parameters of ground water - pH, electrical conductivity, total dissolved solids, total alkalinity, total hardness, calcium, magnesium, sodium, chlorides, sulphates, nitrates and fluorides.All the parameters except nitrates and fluorides are in high concentrations, most of them above the permissible units and are responsible for ground water and surface water pollution.The water is not fit for drinking.
