Abstract: Due to rapid urbanization and inadequate solid waste disposal leads contamination of ground water and surface sources in and around the dump site. In the present study groundwater quality survey was carried out at a major solid waste disposal site at the temple city of Thanjavur (Tamil Nadu, India), where groundwater samples were collected and analyzed for six chemical parameters such as pH, Total Dissolved Solids (TDS), Alkalinity, Hardness, Chloride and Turbidity to assess the effect of solid-waste disposal on the groundwater quality. The quality parameters of the samples were compared with IS code to know the suitability of water for drinking purpose. The study indicates that water quality parameters exceed the permissible limits for drinking at many locations leading the water unsuitable for drinking.
