Water plays a vital role in domestic and industrial usage as water is the main part of an earth. The quality of drinking water is directly proportional to the health of living organism. Assessment of water quality of drinking water supplies has always been paramount in the field of environmental quality management system as per WHO guidelines. Assurance of drinking water safety is a foundation for the prevention and control of water borne diseases to better health of living organism. The suitability of drinking water has many requisite potable conditions. Groundwater quality of Padghe has a special significance and needs greater attention of all concerned since it is the only major source for domestic consumption. In this work we have estimated the ground water quality for drinking purpose at Padghe in raigad district of Maharashtra, India. The various parameters for quality of underground water in Padghe are analyzed and these are compared to established Indian standards. The obtained results indicate that the quality of water slightly deviate from the potable conditions. The analysis showed that water is not well within the parameters of potable use.
