Ground water analysis of 130 villages of Deoli Teshil was carried out during 2008 2011 to evaluate the physicochemical characteristics of water. Water sampling was made on mayjun. 2009 and analysis of water samples done by using standard methods.The result shows that nitrate concentration ranged from 4to 320 mg/L2. High nitrate concentration makes the ground water unsuitable for drinking purpose. Permissible limit of nitrate is 40-50 mg/L by WHO. High nitrate levels in water can cause methemoglobinemia or blue baby syndrome, this condition is found especially in infants under six months age.
