Abstract – Water is a resource having a very high utility. This usefulness has a very long range purpose starting from domestic to industrial use. The use of water in India is mainly for irrigation purposes. Pollution of aquatic ecosystem leads to impairment of water quality and depletion of aquatic life. The need and use of water depends mainly on the economic development, the standard of living and urbanization. In this study on order to check the water quality, various parameters are to be considered including temperature, pH, total dissolved solids, total suspended solids, free  carbon dioxide, biochemical oxygen demand (BOD), chemical oxygen demand (COD), total hardness, turbidity, dissolved oxygen (DO), sulphate, chlorides, electrical conductivity, alkalinity,  water quality index (WQI). The attained outcome results are compared with the Indian Standard Drinking Water specification IS: 10500-2012.
