The population growth and industrial development in Chandrapur, Ballarshah region (Maharashtra State) have made an adverse effect on the quality of ground-water of Visapur Nala Basin. Many dug well waters mainly from the areas adjoining to villages like Bhivkund, Nandgaon, and Visapur show high concentration of Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) (Max.1089 ppm), Nitrate (Max. 159.5 ppm) and Sulfate (Max 945 ppm). The pollutants like nitrate are known to cause physiological distress. Similarly high TDS and Alkali Concentration are known to render water unfit for irrigation. In the present work, on the basis of chemical parameter study, the groundwater of Visapur Nala Basin has been evaluated for its usability in drinking and irrigation. The ground-water of Visapur Nala Basin in general is not very bad for irrigation but the dug well waters Nandgaon and some from Visapur Village are found unfit for drinking purpose owing to characteristically high concentration of Nitrate in them.
