The present study was aimed to determine the impacts of sugar industry on ground water quality of area around the sugar industry. In villages, town and cities most of the population totally depend on the ground water for drinking purposes, domestic as well as for agriculture use, hence quality of ground water is extremely essential and must be analyzed. Ground water sample is compared with the prescribed standard of drinking water given by BIS. Ground water sampling is done in 10 different locations around sugar mill. Various physicochemical parameters is determined using standard method like colour, taste, odour, temperature, pH, Alkalinity, TDS, TSS, TS, DO, COD and BOD. Results of analysis indicated that some parameter like Alkalinity, TDS, COD and DO does not satisfy the BIS limits of drinking water.
