Abstract: The Population growths along with rapid industrialization and strain on civic services have been major causes for environmental degradation globally, especially many of surface and subsurface water bodies gets polluted by rapid industrialization and urbanization, usage of chemical fertilizers in agriculture practices, untreated sewage, industrial effluents, etc., and in addition of lack of public awareness may all cause damage to the quality characteristics i.e. physio-chemical changes in water environs. The ground water quality deteriorating due to seepage of pollutants from various polluted water bodies, like ponds, lakes and runoff, etc. Here an attempt is made to know the quality characteristics in the ground water at Auto Nagar area of Guntur by the Water Quality Index (WQI) with the parameters of pH, Chlorides, TDS, Total Hardness, Ca Hardness, Nitrates, Sulphates, Iron, Dissolved Oxygen and it was found that quality ranges of WQI from 37 to 90, which is a satisfactory quality for domestic utilization of ground water resources
