The ground water quality is one of the most important criterion to ascertain its suitability for human beings and irrigation. This paper presents the ground water quality of Ballarpur city of Chandrapur district, Maharashtra. The ground water samples were collected from ten different locations and analyzed for physico-chemical characteristics such as pH, electrical conductivity (EC), total dissolved solids (TDS), total alkalinity (TA), total hardness (TH), dissolved oxygen (DO), calcium (Ca2+), chloride (Cl), fluoride (F), phosphate (PO3-) and iron (Fe).The obtained results were compared with WHO (World Health Organization) and BIS (Bureau of Indian Standards) limits. The results revealed that some parameters were in high concentration and quality of the potable water has deteriorated to a large extent at some sampling locations.
