Physical assessment of drinking water quality was carried out for the samples takenBangalore, India. Being one of the fastest growing cities in India, inevitably Bangalore is facing the pressure of supplying safe and healthy drinking water to such a huge population. Therefore, it is of high importancquality in such places. In this present study water samples were collected from all over Bangalore peripheral regions as well as a proportion from the central region as well. Test for pH and Total dissolved solids were carrie1581 water samples. The whole city was divided in six regions for wellparameters were found to fairly exceed the standard values in certain places. All the unfitness of the water may haoccurred due to the poor storage and maintenance system.
