Abstract: In the world scenario the contamination of water due to the various reasons is one of the major problems in the urban and semi-urban areas which have both positive and negative impact on the existed environment and also on the quality of human life. The developing activities taking place in and around the urban areas covers soil with concrete which leads to reduced soil recharge capacity at one side and the other side releasing of untreated urban sewage in to nearby open water bodies without any concern became most practicing method in most of the urban areas. The new capital region of Andhra Pradesh is selected as study area which is rapidly developing with commercial and residential built-up area. Due to which the pressure on groundwater is increased rapidly with respect to its quality and the quantity to meet the requirement of the living as well as migrating people from all the corners to the newly developing capital region. If the similar situation continues there will be a severe and irreparable damage to the availability of groundwater for the future generation and also there will be a notable reduction in the living standards of urban people. The present study examines groundwater and surface water quality and compared with water quality standards to determine the status of water quality at study area. A total three samples were collected for three times in three consecutive months of study period and analyzed by using standard analytical procedures. Geo spatial technology was adopted to represent the statistical data of water quality in the form of GIS maps for more accuracy to identify the periodical changes in water quality at study area.
