Water sources available for drinking and other domestic purposes must possess high degree of purity, free from chemical contamination and microorganisms. The rapid growth of urban areas has further affected the water quality due to over exploitation of resources and improper waste disposal practices. A piece of investigation was carried out to study the ground water quality, nutrient status and physicochemical characteristics of ground water in Madurai, India. Various samples of ground water were collected in ten different places and the physicochemical analysis of the collected samples were carried out for the parameters, such as temperature, pH, total dissolved solids (TDS), electrical conductivity (EC), total hardness (TH), alkalinity, calcium, magnesium, sodium, potassium, chloride, sulphate, nitrate , fluoride, chemical oxygen demand, dissolved oxygen, etc., In most of the places, the quality of water was not found suitable for domestic and industrial purposes, because of high concentration of total dissolved solids, total alkalinity, total hardness etc.,
