ABSTRACT

The present research work deals with assessment of drinking water quality of 30 villages from Gadhinglaj tahsil; carried out
during the year 2013-2014. The physico-chemical and Microbial parameters were assessed to check either the water is
suitable or not for drinking purpose. The physico-chemical parameters such as Total hardness, Ca, Mg, Chloride, Total
alkalinity, pH and EC were analyzed as per standard methods. The microbial parameters like MPN, SPC, Total and Fecal
coliforms were carried out. The investigation has confirmed a significant number of fecal coliform in all the samples and it
found significantly higher than the WHO limit (0) for drinking water. So all the water samples may raise concern on the safety
of the water for human health may cause the various water borne and gastro-intestinal diseases so, proper hygiene and
purification techniques should be recommended.

Keywords: Water, Physico-chemical and Microbial parameters.
