In the present investigation, the suitability of available groundwater for drinking application is assessed using parameters like pH, total dissolved solids (TDS), Fluoride, Iron and Nitrate. Fifteen samples collected from different villages in Sinnar tehsil area are analysed using standard water analysis protocol. Iron concentration oscillated from 0.09 to 1.35 mg/L and Nitrate concentration ranged from 01 to 124 mg/L, and the average is 51.86 mg/L in the study area. The Fluoride concentration in the study area is averaged to 0.18 mg/L. Only five of fifteen samples are found potable.
