The physico-chemical status of water samples from ten major part of locality in Akot city was assess. The sampling points were selected on the basis of their importance. The physicochemical parameter like, temperature, pH, electrical conductivity (EC), total dissolved solids (TDS), turbidity, dissolved oxygen (DO), total alkalinity (TA), total hardness (TH), calcium (Ca++) magnesium (Mg++ ), sodium (Na), potassium (K+), chloride (Cl), fluoride (F), nitrate (NO3) sulphate (SO2-) and phosphate (PO3-) of Open Well and Bore well was determined. The results were compared with standards prescribed by WHO (1973) and ISI (10500-91). It was found that the ground water was contaminated at few sampling sites namely Shri Shivaji College, Mahalaxmi Nagar While the sampling sites Keshvaoraj vetal, shaukatali chok and Ramtek pura showed physicochemical parameters within the water quality standards and the quality of water is good and it is fit for drinking purpose.
