Water Quality Index has been calculated for different sources in Pre monsoon period (March 2012) i.e. dug well, bore well, Hand pumps & Prercolation well at Murshatpur ,Chandgavhan & Hingani villages of Kopargaon Taluka, Ahmednagar, Maharashtra. This has been determined by collecting ground water 16 numbers of sampling stations and subjecting the samples to a comprehensive physiochemical analysis. For calculating the WQI, the following 10 parameters have been considered i.e Temperature,pH, Alkalinity ,Dissolved Oxygen, ,TDS ,Total hardness, Calcium, Magnesium, Chloride, Fluoride. The WQI for these samples ranges from 226.88 to 799.15. The high value of WQI has been found to be mainly from the higher values of Alkalinity, TDS, Hardness, Calcium, Magenesium in ground water. The result of analysis have been used to suggest model for predicting water quality,The analysis reveals that the ground water of the area needs some degree of treatment before consumption, and it also need to be protected from the perils of contamination.
