Abstract: This study aims to explore household environmental problems in rural areas of Kolar Taluk, Karnataka. The connection between various household environmental health issues and income of the people of Kolar taluk Karnataka have been studies. The data required for the study were gathered by questionnaire from distribution method, 277 individual families were selected from 10 villages in the taluk at different subsections. After the analysis of the data samples of water were collected from bore well and open containers those used by village dwellers and analyzed for pollution parameters, Multiple regression and Chi-square analysis were done and found to be that income and environment variables are significant at 1% level in Chi-square model. Multiple regression models were predicted for low, middle and high income households with respect to contributing variables of diseases. It is found that prevailing non-latrines and water storage methods were effective parameters which have significant effect on the model. The multiple regression model predicts that 78.2% deviation in dysentery with the parameters selected, but for jaundice, it was 90.5% using water from open storage containers. It was observed that bacteriological quality of drinking water declines significantly and deterioration occurs between the point of supply to consumption.
