Water is very important for the entire life on earth. Like surface water, ground water is a source of water in many parts of the world. It’s very necessary to assess the ground water quality for its use. In order to diagnose the water quality for consumption of earthling the ground water samples from Sangamner Tehsil region were analyzed. Total nine samples were examined with parameters such as pH, EC and T.D.S. The Ca, Mg, HCO3, CO3 were determined titrametrically and Na by flame photometer. The result obtained were compared with the Indian standard drinking water – specification IS 10500-1991 (Reaffirmed-2009) and also the standards declared by WHO (2005). The selected region is agro-developed area, that being the case the chemical fertilizers oozes through soil and contaminate the ground water increasing the salinity, TDS, and other physicochemical properties of soil. The consequences of such contamination are acute along with chronic diseases. The result showed that the PH in the range of 7.61 to 8.48, Electrical conductivity from 370 to 2680, TDS 317 to 2460, Sodium 42 to more than 100, Calcium was in the range of 84.4 to 295.6, Magnesium 19.4 to 269.4, HCO3- 42 to 530, carbonate 80 to 640. Total hardness, Alkalinity, Nitrite, Sulphate, Silica, Chloride and Fluoride were also determined by using standard methods. Total Hardness was found from 400 to 1950, Alkalinity 130 to 400, Nitrite 15 to 25, sulphate 50 to 110, Silica 75 to 125, Chlorides 50 to 800.
