Ground water samples were collected from eight different hands pump (drinking water sources) around Karwi city, Chitrakoot District (U.P.).The physico-chemical analyses of ground and drinking water quality in Karwi city, 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. Average pH, total dissolved solids, total hardness, chloride, alkalinity, fluoride, nitrate and Iron values are 7.84, 617.62 mg/l, 691.87, 136.61 mg/l, 180.75 mg/l, 1.43 mg/l, 36.48 mg/l, 1.57 mg/l and 0.29 mg/l in respectively. The study was reported some other important parameters which exceeded the permissible limit and it is unsuitable for drinking purposes.
