For present ground water study, Mandideep industrial area were divided in to 20 Blocks in which 13 blocks were selected for this study and other 7 blocks have open area around was no monitoring blocks. Study of all Physico-chemical parameters of ground water was carried out during different four quarters of year 2017 to 2018. All ground water monitoring was done as per standard guidelines followed by Central Pollution Control Board and analyzed by standard methods. It is concluded that high contamination in ground waters observed at few locations around Mandideep Industrial area during this study as compare to drinking water standard BIS , 10500 (2012).
