In present investigation physico-chemical analysis of sewage and well water of Ahmednagar (Maharashatra) city was done. Samples were collected from different localities of the city during the year 2013. The results of current investigations reveal that all the study parameters are more than reference range of water quality for irrigation. This suggests that the sewage water needs a pretreatment before its usage for irrigation
