Abstract

Groundwater has been considered as an important source of water supply due to its relatively low susceptibility to pollution in comparison with surface water, and its large storage capacity. It should be mentioned that water pollution is any chemical, physical or biological change in the quality of water that has a harmful effect on any living thing that drinks or uses or lives (in) it. When humans drink polluted water it often has serious consequences on their health. Water pollution can also make water unsuited for the desired use. In this context, an attempt has been made to assess the ground water quality of Ujjain city. Samples were collected from 17 locations of Ujjain city from various ground water sources for summer season and analysed for physico-chemical parameters .The results of analysis were compared with the Indian standards (BIS, IS 10500:1991) of drinking water quality parameters. The pH values of all samples indicate with in desirable limit. Turbidity, alkalinity, total hardness values are within permissible limit in all the samples. Total dissolved solids, chloride and fluoride are beyond permissible limit in some of the ground water samples.
