The present study was aimed to identify the ground water contamination problems in Laksar block of district Haridwar. The ground water samples were collected from 6 different locations of Laksar block. The Physico -chemical parameters were assessed to check either the water is suitable or not for drinking purpose. The Physico-chemical parameters such Temperature, Total hardness (TH), Calcium Hardness (CaH), Acidity, Chloride, Sulphate, pH and Electrical Conductivity (EC) were analysed as per standard methods. In this study values of different parameters were recorded such as acidity (78.6 to 79.4 mg/l), pH (6.36 to7.11), chloride (111.8 to 113.8 mg/l) and total hardness (370.2 to 374.6 mg/l) respectively. This study revealed that water samples may raise concern on the safety of the water for human health may cause the various water borne disease, therefore, the proper hygiene and purification techniques should be recommended.
