A Systematic study has been carried out to explore the physicochemical characteristics of ground water samples of Omkarnagar region of Nagpur city. Bore well water samples were collected from Omkarnagar area of Nagpur city and analyzed for temperature, pH, dissolved oxygen, total dissolved solids, Chloride, total alkalinity, calcium and magnesium hardness, etc. In the present study TDS ranged from 532 mg/L to 658 mg/L which lies above the range in all the water samples suggested by WHO and Indian standards. Present study recommends that the top priority should be given to water quality monitoring and indigenous technologies should be adopted to make water fit for drinking after treatment.
