ABSTRACT: The ground water is most prime water which has multipurpose use ranging from drinking to industrial and agricultural uses. The continuously increase in the level of pollution of water is a serious problem. The city of Gorakhpur is not untouched with this serious issue .The pollution level of the major water sources in and around the city is increase rapidly. The main objective of the present study is to study the variation of ground water quality in Gorakhpur district, by collecting 20 samples of water from hand pump from 20 locations well distributed with in Gorakhpur district were analyzed for different parameters such as pH, electric conductivity , chloride total ,free chlorine , hardness, fluoride, nitrate, iron, Turbidity, potassium. Groundwater is polluted from seepage pits, refuse dumps, septic tanks, barnyards manures, transport accident and different pollutant. Important sources of ground water pollution are sewage is dumped in shallow soak pits. It gives rise to cholera, hepatitis, dysenteries, etc. especially in areas with high water table.
