Abstract: Groundwater is the combination of different minerals and salts which is available to the human kind for the survival primarily and also for all the developmental activities of the society. Around the world the quality of the groundwater at majority of the fresh water aquifers is good and recommendable for consumption with basic treatment where as the accessibility of groundwater depends on the practices taking place for lifting of water, rate of consumption along with the climatic conditions. Groundwater is the most important and the essential need for all the living beings irrespective of age and the species they belongs to, because almost more than ninety percent of metabolic activities of the human beings and the other living organisms depends on the water itself, even though water is available in the other notable form as surface water  it is not at all recommendable for consumption without proper required treatment . In the present scenario accessing of quality groundwater is the most difficult and complex issue to meet the daily demand of the public especially in the developing cities  and the towns it is very big complicated issue due to the continues addition of unpredictable population year by year which makes the situation more worse. Apart from the above man made activities quality and the quantity of groundwater also depends on the existed soil conditions and its function with respect to the water holding capacity and rate of infiltration. The present study was carried out at downstream area of Krishna River in mangalagiri mandal of Guntur district, Andhra Pradesh. The study area had been divided into eight locations based on the possible interference of groundwater by human activities to find out the complete and detail composition of various cationic, anionic and heavy metals of water to estimate the suitability of water for consumption.
