Water is indispensable for the existence and survival of life on earth. Water is needed in almost every sphere of human activity. Groundwater pollution is one of the environmental problems in urban areas. The paper presents potassium, sodium and other important physico-chemical parameters present in drinking water of residential compound of hostel at Chitrakoot and Majhagwan area, India and analyzed for their physico-chemical and biological characteristics. The results of this analysis were compared with the water quality standards of WHO, BIS and ICMR. The water samples have been collected from 6 bore wells and hand pump in Chitrakoot and Majhagwan area. In this analysis the various physicochemical and biological parameters such as pH, EC, Total Dissolved Solids, Total Hardness, Ca, Mg, Na, NO3, K, Fe, Cl and E. coli were determined using standard procedures.
