However, there is no proper sever system in the town and industrial effluents are allowed to flow over the roads and streets, consequently dangering the ground water quality.

The Parameters which were determined are Colour, Taste, Odour, Temperature, pH, Conductivity, Turbidity and contents Total solids, Suspended solids, Settable solids, DO, BOD, COD, TKN, BHC. The water Samples were also analysed for the determination of Calcium, Magnessium, Chloride, Sulphate, Caorbonate, Nitrate, Sodium, Potassium and free CO2.
The level of those parameters and contents were evaluated over all the six sites and results were lowest at site-4 (Durga Colony) and highest at site-3 Chitragupta Colony) in the summer.
