Water is one of the most important of all natural resources known on the earth. The safety of drinking water is important for the health. The safety of drinking water is affected by various contaminants which included chemical and microbiological. Such contaminants cause serious health problems. The physico-chemical analyses of ground and drinking water quality in rural areas of Karwi, Chitrakoot were studied. Temperature, pH, electrical conductivity, total dissolved solids, Total hardness have been determined along various water quality profiles. The experimental procedures were set according to the BIS and WHO (1999). Average pH, total dissolved solids, total hardness, chloride, alkalinity, fluoride, nitrate, sulphate, phosphate and Iron values are 6.87, 649.92 mg/l, 465.29, 153.66 mg/l, 344.22 mg/l, 0.95 mg/l, 36.48 mg/l, 17.74 mg/l, 0.14 mg/l and 0.10 mg/l in respectively. The study was reported some other important parameters which exceeded the permissible limit and it is unsuitable for drinking purposes.
