The aim of the present investigation is to assess the trace element concentration of sewage and well water of Ahmednagar (Maharashatra) city was done. The collection of samples was done from different localities of the city during the year 2013. The samples were analysed for trace elements like Fe, Mn, Zn, Cu, B, Cd, Cr, Ni, As and F using AAS. The results of study show that all the study elements are more than reference range of water quality for irrigaton.
