Abstract – Water is the basic element of social and economic infrastructure and is essential for healthy society and sustainable development. In human society, depletion of groundwater has been the major concern. of the paper is to preserve and maintain balanced ecology with sustainment in groundwater. Hydro chemical study is a front line parameter to determine the quality of water for end users. The study for the same has been carried on the ground water by collecting groundwater samples in Tiruppur. A total number of 20 samples were collected and analyzed. The samples were subjected to a comprehensive physico-chemical analysis of parameters such as pH, Electrical Conductivity, Turbidity, Chloride, TDS, TSS, Iron, Sodium, TS, Fluoride. Geographical information system has been used to map the sampling area. The co-ordinates in terms of latitude and longitude of the sampling locations were recorded with the help of global positioning system. Predominant factors that govern the hydro line geo chemistry of groundwater in study area was identified and analysed. Classification methods are used to classify the water quality regulating factors. Poor water quality has been observed in commercial zone of study area.
