Ground water is the major role for drinking in Nagapattinam District. The current investigation, twenty bore well samples collected for investigation in Kilvelur taluk, Nagapattinam district. The parameters like pH, Electrical conductivity, Total dissolved solids, Total hardness, Calcium, Magnesium, Carbonate, Bicarbonate, Chloride, Nitrate, Sulphate, Phosphate, Sodium, Potassium, Dissolved oxygen, Biochemical oxygen demand, Chemical oxygen demand of ground water samples was determined. To compare the above parameter of the ground water samples with World Health Organization and Indian Council of Medical Research limitations it exhibit some ground water samples are polluted and others are within the permissible limits.
