Water pollution is a global problem of urban cities. Its use is universal – by man, plants and animals because it is essential for life, health and sanitation. Water required for domestic consumption should be free from suspended and dissolved impurities, bacteria etc. As improper sanitation and lack of suitable drainage system causes ground water pollution in the municipal cities. The present study aims to deals with the ground water quality of Gwalior city which is assessed by examining various physico - chemical parameters. Ground water and municipal supplied water samples were collected from fifteen (15) area in Gwalior city during Pre-monsoon (April, May, June) and Post-monsoon (Oct, Nov, Dec) 2010. The physico – chemical parameters such as Temperature, pH, Turbidity, Electrical Conductivity, Total Dissolved Solids, Calcium, Magnesium, Chloride, Dissolved Oxygen, Chemical Oxygen Demand, Total Hardness, Total Alkalinity were analyzed (APHA, 2005) to know the present status of the ground water quality. The results were compared with standards prescribed by ISI 10500-91and WHO (2008).
