Water from wells is the mostly the source of drinking water for Pravara area. Some villages use bore well water for drinking. Pravara River which runs from most part of Pravara area contaminates the well water. Also bore well water for most part of region is found to be salty. This water is unhealthy for living part of environment. For this study we have collected 10 samples from the region and analyzed some essential parameter like pH, electrical conductivity, TDS, Alkalinity, Dissolved oxygen, Biochemical oxygen demand, Total Hardness, Calcium, Magnesium, chloride, sodium, potassium, carbonate.
