Tambapura area is a slum area of Jalgaon city, characterized by a densely populated area marked by heavy crowding, dirty run-down housing, poverty, and social disorganization. Large quantities of solid waste generated from the residences, commercial, municipal and hospitals are dumped in open land areas. Such dumping causes environmental pollution by deteriorating the ground water quality, encourage the breedingof disease-vector insects, animal scavengers and rodents resulting in spreading of air and water borne diseases. The present study was conducted to assess the health and hygiene conditions due to open solid waste dumping in Tambapura area. To carry out the study, the ground water samples were collected and analyzed for various physical, chemical and biological parameters to assess the contamination due to solid waste dumping. The health impacts were studied by systematic review of water borne and vector borne diseases that had affected adults and children’s in this region. The results reviewed that due to poor sanitation, unhygienic conditions and unsecured drinking water people of slum area are prone to much water borne and vector borne diseases.
