Abstract :The present study is focused on the Physico-chemical analysis of the underground water samples which were collected from different sites of the some rural areas of Kanpur region of Uttar Pradesh. The samples were collected in the month of August, 2011. For experimental purpose three samples of water were collected from the some selected areas of the city. These samples have been physico-chemically analysed and tested their suitability for drinking purpose. Just after collection these samples were analysed for various physico-chemical parameters. These parameters are odour, colour, pH value, total hardness, calcium, total alkalinity, electrical conductivity, chloride, fluoride, magnesium, sulphate, Potassium, nitrate and total dissolved solids (T.D.S.). There are so many inorganic and organic impurities suspended in water. Thus water is not suitable for drinking purpose. The result clearly indicates that most of the physico-chemical parameters are within permissible limits except sample-3.
