Water of good drinking quality is of basic importance to human physiology and manís continued existence depends very much on its availability. The assessment of borewell water quality for suitability for drinking and domestic purpose was carried out from Madyal and Vadgaon villages of Kagal Tahsil, Maharashtra. 24 borewell water samples were collected from these villages during March 2013. The physico-chemical parameters like pH, E.C., total alkalinity, total hardness, calcium hardness, magnesium hardness, chloride, salinity, TDS and DO have been analyzed .The result were compared with WHO, BIS & ICMR drinking water standards. On the basis of hardness, Out of 24 borewell water samples, 8 samples were above 300 mg/l so it causes harmful effect on Human health.
