Ground Water samples from various bore wells of different points from the open dumpsite of Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) of Mayiladuthurai, Tamilnadu, India were taken to find the impact of leachate flow on groundwater quality by physico chemical analysis. Parameters like, Iron, Nitrate, Sulphate, Fluoride, Phosphate, Chemical Oxygen Demand were determined. These values were compared with permissible limit. Higher value were found in water sample near the dumpsite area when compared to other site. Mild to high Iron concentration found in most samples, which are higher than Indian standard limit of 1.0mg. The higher value of COD indicates inorganic chemicals pollute that ground water. Therefore, the soil parameters in study area have some influenced leachate migration.
