The ground water is considered to be the most ancient source of water. It is one of the major sources
of drinking water in the village and rural area. Physico-chemical characteristics of water samples from
24 villages of district Bikaner were studied. The water quality parameters like colour, odour, pH, TDS,
TH, EC, major ions like F-, NO3-, Cl-, SO4
2- ,Ca2+ and Mg2+ were studied. It is found that some water
samples are non potable for drinking purpose due to high concentration of one parameter or other.
The high value of these parameters may have health implications and therefore, needs attention.
