Ambarnath town in Thane district of Maharashtra is having three major industrial zones. Ambarnath Chikloli-Morivali industrial zone is selected for study purpose. Study had undertaken to find out the effect of industrialization and urbanization on the groundwater. For the study purpose five ground water samples around industrial area were analyzed for physicochemical characteristics during Jan.2013 to June 2013. pH, TDS, Chloride, Sulphate were found within the permissible limits of BIS and WHO for all ground water samples. All groundwater samples were found above the permissible limits of BIS and WHO for turbidity. S1, S4 and S5 samples show higher Electrical Conductance during study period. Dissolved Oxygen was found lowest at S2, indicates contamination by organic material around the study area. Turbidity, Electrical Conductance and Dissolve Oxygen parameter indicates that water is not suitable for domestic and other purposes.
