Abstract: Experimental investigations were carried out on industrial wastewater and groundwater to determine the physical and chemical parameters. Various physico-chemical parameters such as pH, odour, turbidity, total dissolved solids (TDS), electrical conductivity (EC), alkalinity, total hardness (TH), calcium (Ca), sodium (Na), potassium (K), Iron (Fe), ammonia (NH3), nitrate (No3), chloride (Cl), fluoride (F), sulphate (SO4) and phosphate (PO4) were determined to assess the suitability of water for drinking and agricultural and activities. The study infers that biological treatment is preferred for industrial wastewater and primary treatment is needed for bore well water to use them for agricultural purposes effectively.
