Abstract: The present work is carried out for assessing the groundwater quality of Kattedan industrial area. About 26 groundwater samples were collected in and around the Kattedan industrial area for a physicochemical analysis. The present water quality status is calculated by considering the following 13 parameters such as pH, Colour, Turbidity , Dissolved Oxygen, Conductivity, Alkalinity, Total dissolved solids, Chlorides, Phosphates, Nitrates, Total Hardness, Calcium Hardness, Magnesium Hardness. The acquired results are compared with BIS 10500: 2012 Drinking Water Specification. The results showed that the ground water with in industrial area has very high content of Total dissolved solids , Turbidity, Conductivity, Colour, DO, chlorides, Phosphates and Mg, Ca and Total Hardness showing that the industrial effluents are causing direct contamination of water, and are also responsible for potential health problems. The results of the study suggest that regular analysis of physicochemical characteristics should be carried out to protect the water resources and to safeguard the groundwater quality in and around Kattedan industrial area.
