Ten ground water samples (S-1 to S-10) were collected from different locations of Imphal East district of Manipur during November, 2013 of post-monsoon and they were analyzed for various physico-chemical parameters such as temperature, pH, TDS (total dissolved solids), electrical conductivity, total hardness, calcium (Ca), magnesium (Mg), sodium (Na), potassium (K) and chloride (Cl). In case of ground waters represented by S-2 to S-5 and S-8 to S-10, the values of different physico-chemical parameters are within the desirable limits of BIS standards for drinking water as well as that of WHO and they are fit for drinking purpose from physico-chemical point of view. Ground waters represented by S-1, S-6 and S-7 are unfit for drinking purpose and some suitable treatments are necessary in case of them so as to keep some of the parameters within desirable limit of BIS standards for drinking water. However, all the ground waters represented by S-1 to S-10, are fit for other domestic and irrigation (or agriculture) purposes as are evident from their TDS, percent sodium (%Na) and SAR (sodium adsorption ratio) values.
