Ground water is one of the major sources of water in arid and semiarid regions. Assessment and mapping of ground water quality is very important because the physic- chemical characteristics of groundwater determine its suitability for drinking purpose. The present study evaluates the suitability of groundwater for drinking purpose in the study area coupled with GIS technology. 18 water samples were collected and analyzed for various physiochemical constituents. The integrated drinking water quality map prepared shows the areas good, suitable and unsuitable for drinking purposes.
