Ground water samples from Cooum belt areas were collected and analyzed for their physico-chemical characteristics. Results obtained were inferred based on the drinking water quality standards of IS 10500:1991. Out of the ten locations chosen, Anna Nagar and Pachayappas were found to possess high total dissolved solids values. Nitrate was found higher in ground water drawn from sources of Fort St. George and Pachayappas. Possibility of pollution of ground water resources in Cooum belt areas is indicated by the study.
