Abstract: The estimation of water quality is very important to know its suitability for various purposes. Water is very important and it is also used for various activities. This study was carried out to evaluate the groundwater quality in Avadi area. To find its suitability various testes like physico-chemical parameters and trace metals have been analyzed. From the study area various water samples were collected and analyzed. The results showed that from residential areas most of the water quality is above the permissible limits of BIS and WHO. In an average more amount of sample is above the permissible limit, which is very harmful for our health hence they are not used as a drinking water. Thus treatment of water should be done before it is used as a drinking water.
