ABSTRACT
The physico-chemical parameters of water samples collected from various villages in and around Yavatmal district were assess. The physico-chemical parameter like, temperature, pH, electrical conductivity (EC), total dissolved solids (TDS), total alkalinity (TA), sulphate (SO4), iron (Fe), chloride (Cl-), fluoride (F-), nitrate (NO3) was determined. The results were compared with standards prescribed by WHO and ISI. It was found that the water samples collected from various villages in and around Yavatmal district was found contaminated by some parameters. All sampling of villages showed physico-chemical parameters above the water quality standards and the quality of water are very bad at some places and it is unfit for drinking purpose. Whereas the sampling from some points of villages has somewhat good quality water.
