These pollutants are responsible for the degradation of aquatic ecosystems and groundwater resources. Methods and Analysis: The areas from PEERIZADIGUDA to PRATAPASINGARAM selected for analysis which are located at down streams of MUSI River. Ground water samples are collected from each location and Physical, chemical and biological parameters are analyzed by using suitable methodologies of PH, Total dissolved salts, Turbidity, Total Hardness, chlorides sulphates and Biological oxygen demand water quality parameters are assessed. A study has made on these selected areas of population for health hazards due water born diseases by sampling method. Finding: This paper discuss about Environmental sanitation, water pollution constitutes a serious problem particularly in the mega cities.
