Study of the ground water quality in Sabarkantha is an essential ingredient for a healthy population. In this research, study of drinking water samples for twenty water sources wells in the Himatnagar field has been carried out. The purpose was to ascertain the quality of water from these sources. The physical properties such as pH, electrical conductivity (EC) and total dissolved solids (TDS), showed the variation of pH (7.24-7.80),TDS (744.0-1008.6) mg L-1, within the permissible limits of World Health Organization (WHO). The total hardness (TH), SO4 –2, PO4 –3, Cl– , Na+ , K + , Ca+2 and Mg+2 have been measured.
