About 24 water samples representing 24 villages covering 180 sq km have been collected for assessing suitability for drinking and spatial distribution which leads to enhance the knowledge of the hydro chemical system in the Chevella sub basin. Three physical constituents such as pH, TH, and TDS; consecutively in pre monsoon minimum is 7.1, 216 and 509 milligrams per liter and maximum is 8.3, 459 and 1082 milligrams per liter respectively; and maximum physical properties constituted as 8.2, 353 and 877 milligrams per liter while minimum constituted such as 7.1, 222 and 407 milligrams per liter respectively in post monsoon. Concentration of sodium in pre monsoon falls in between 63 milligrams per liter as minimum and 134 milligrams per liter as maximum. In post monsoon it varies from 56 milligrams per liter to 121 milligrams per liter. Maximum Magnesium, Calcium, Iron, Chloride, Sulfates, Bi-carbonates Carbonates and Nitrates is per liter, 159.3 milligrams per liter, 0.1 milligrams per liter, 3.6 milligrams per liter respectively where as maximum constituted as 52 milligrams per liter, 121 milligrams per liter, 0.5 milligrams per liter, 1.3 milligrams per liter, 175.2 milligrams per liter, 93.5 milligrams per liter, 338.4 milligrams per liter, 1.1 milligrams per liter, 19.8 milligrams per liter respectively in post monsoon. In pre monsoon maximum Magnesium, Calcium, Iron, Chloride, Sulfates, Bi-carbonates Carbonates and Nitrates is constituted as 68 milligrams per liter, 99 milligrams per liter, 0.6 milligrams per liter, 1.4 milligrams per liter, 202 milligrams per liter, 70 milligrams per liter, 175 milligrams per liter, 2.4 milligrams per liter, 20.8 milligrams per liter respectively.
