This study deals with assessment of physico-chemical characteristic of groundwater around Sangamner tahsil of Ahmednagar district in Maharashtra. The study has been carried out to examine its suitability for drinking, irrigation and industrial purpose. Rapid industrialization and advance techniques of agriculture caused groundwater pollution has affected the quality of groundwater due to its overuse and improper waste disposal. Groundwater pollution caused by human being activities like more use of fertilizers, pesticides used in agricultural field, release of industrial waste water, percolation of surface water etc. In the present study, attempts has been made to investigate some physico-chemical parameters of 17 groundwater samples collected from two sources like as Bore well and Dug well of some villages in Sangamner tahsil of Ahmednagar district in Maharashtra. The parameters such as pH, electrical conductance, total hardness, total dissolved solid, turbidiance, calcium hardness, calcium, magnesium, sodium, potassium, chloride, iron, total alkalinity, carbonate, bicarbonate, sulphate and fluoride. The results indicate that all the groundwater parameter was found very high.
