Bachigudem village was selected for ground water assessment as it lies in the nakkavagu catchment area. Parameters from eight sources were analysed for parameters such as color, turbidity, pH, total alkalinity, total dissolved solids, total hardness, chlorides, sulphates, nitrates, fluorides and electrical conductivity. The sampling was done in month of September which is almost end of rainy season. The results showed gross contamination of the ground water in bachigudem village.
