Historically, Maihar is an important place in the Central India. Millions of people from all over the country visit for Darshan of Goddess Sharda-Mata. This town is also an important place with well developed cement industries and a number of lime companies. In the present work we have carried out estimation of Iron contents of water samples collected from different parts of Maihar region. The concentration of Iron in water from hand pumps, bore wells and river water ranges between 0.01 to 1.0 mg/l. Water samples of hand pumps of Itchol School, Tighara, Palahpur, Geetnagar, Bhatanbara and bore well no.-3 having the higher concentration of Iron than the WHO permissible limit.
