ABSTRACT
This paper presents the study on the physico-chemical parameters of Groundwater samples collected at nine stations at
the radius of 10km as center as SIPCOT industries and location are chosen in northern part of Perundurai in Erode district. The
quality of Ground Water samples are compared to the water quality index for the drinking purpose. The water quality index is
calculated by the help of parameter sample results like Turbidity, Electrical Conductivity, Total dissolved solids, Total Alkalinity,
Sodium, Iron, Calcium, pH, Total Hardness, Magnesium, Manganese, Nitrate, Chloride, Fluoride, Sulphate, Ammonia, Phosphate
through formulae. Finally, the comparison of quality of Groundwater on basis of Water quality index done on collected sample
stations. The calculated water quality index results shows that 22.22% falls in the Excellent to Good water category. On the
otherhand 44.44% falls in the poor to very poor water category indicating the water is not suitable for drinking and need further
treatment. This work has been carried over in the summer, where the data has to be collected in the other seasons to make the
comparative study in further.
