Abstract: This study focus on groundwater quality of which is a high concentration of fluoride problem. Groundwater is the major source of drinking water in both urban and rural in Prakasham District. Markapuram town is located in Prakasham district suffers from fluoride problem due to lime quarries present in that location. These causes serious health problem to the people who are living in this area. The samples of ground water are collected from various locations and tests had been conducted. The water samples were analyzed for chemical parameters pH, Electrical Conductivity, Total dissolved solids, Total hardness, Fluoride, Calcium and magnesium. It is found that drinking water of the region was slightly acidic in nature. The concentration of fluoride in the water samples ranged between 4 and 6 mg/L. Water samples contains fluoride more than the permissible limit as per BIS 10500-2012. The fluoride content should be controlled by the defluoridation technique. We suggest electrolytic defluoridation technology and design details of electrolytic defluoridation plant in Markapuram Prakasham district, A.P.
