The present study aims at determining the suitability of ground water quality for drinking purposes at selected locations in Kottapatti Village at Dindigul District. Dindigul is one of the important places for its tannery units. It has more than 50 tannery units in and around the city and nearly 30 units are under processing of leather. It is a known fact that processing of leather requires a large amount of freshwater along with various chemicals. Groundwater is the main source of drinking water in Dindigul. The leather industry in and around the Dindigul city pollutes both surface and groundwater by discharging their wastes. Hence, the present study has been undertaken to determine the physico-chemical characteristics of groundwater in some selected locations in Kottapatti Village at Dindigul District. Various water samples were taken at three different locations. The samples are analyzed for physico-chemical parameters. The results were compared with drinking water standards of Bureau of Indian Standards (IS:10500) and World Health Organization Standards (WHO, 2011). Further, the correlation among different parameters of water were also estimated.
