          Water is the important for everyone for land and regulating the climate. It is one of the most important compounds that profoundly influence life. The quality of water usually described according to its physical and chemical characteristics. The quality of water is studied in the villages of AMARAVATHI, Andhra Pradesh, India. The water samples from ten locations within the area of the Amaravathi region are collected with monthly variations for three month and analysed for their suitability with respect to drinking, irrigation . The results are compared with the respective BIS codes and Indian standards coads analysed using different approaches (a) National Sanitation Foundation Water Quality Index (NSFWQI) (b) Nemerows pollution index method . However, the overall ground water quality is suitable for irrigation purposes, though a few parameters showed high values at few locations.. Parameters that are tested include temperature ,pH, Hardness ,Acidity, Alkalinity ,turbidity ,chlorides ,DO,BOD and based on the quality treatment plant will also be designed. The water quality is ranked as Excellent Good Poor to Very Poor in the study region based on test results.
