A study was conducted in Suttur village, Nanjangudtaluk of Mysore District, Karnataka to determine the physico-chemical, biological, and microbiological parameters of drinking water quality from surface water, bore wells and open wells. The water samples were collected from suttur village and analysed for a period of three months from January 2014 to March 2014. The results were compared with the BIS standard and they revealed that the most of the parameters are exceeding the permissible limit for drinking water. Higher values were observed for most of the parameters except pH, Alkalinity, DO, BOD, COD. Higher values of certain parameters indicate the unfitness of water for drinking purpose. Therefore, it is suggested more emphasis should be given to reduce microbial load, total hardness, conductivity, TDS, chloride etc contents wherever these parameters exceeding the limits of the standards.
