In the present study ground water is used as sample and analysed for various characteristics. Total 6 samples were collected from different parts of Rewa city (M.P.) and their pH, temperature, TDS, total hardness, calcium and magnesium hardness, carbonate, bicarbonate, odour and colour were detected. It is observed that people who are using ground water without any pre-treatment for their drinking purpose are suffering from different kind of diseases like hair fall, stomach pain, kidney failure, skin diseases, acidity etc. The main objective of this study was to find out the quality of drinking water present in Rewa city and its impact on human health. Findings showed that the ground water of Rewa city contain high amount of dissolved particle which can cause gastrointestinal irritation and contains high amount of calcium and magnesium. Variation in pH is also observed with the change of sampling site which may affect mucous membrane. By all findings it is suggested that the ground water of various sites is not suitable for drinking purpose without any pre-treatment.
