A study was carried out in granite mining area in Jhansi (Goramachia) to evaluate the current status of physicochemical contaminants and their sources in groundwater. Groundwater samples collected from mining and residential area in 6 different locations were analyzed. There are almost 30 crushers running in the study area. The location (Goramachia) is situated at 10 km north-east of Jhansi city. In each location of mining and residential areas, three samples were collected at various distances. The physico-chemical parameters such as pH, DO, EC TDS, alkalanity, turbidity, calcium hardness, magnesium hardness, total hardness, nitrate, fluoride, iron and chloride have been analyzed. The results showed that among the mining and the residential locations, many of the estimated physico-chemical parameters of mining and residential areas are more or less with the permissible limits of WHO.
