Kolhapur is developed city suffering from pollution problems. The water supply to Kolhapur city is mainly from river panchanganga but now a days river panchanganga is severely polluted hence water quality from KMC water supply is deteriorated. Due to short supply and pollution of water most of residents use bore well water as an alternate source. Hence the monitoring and analysis of water quality from bore well is very essential. To evaluate quality of bore well water the samples were collected from selected sites of various sectors as Urban, Industrial, Slum and Agricultural regularly from march 2005 to February 2006. The water samples analyzed for physico-chemical and bacteriological parameters, certain parameters are beyond the permissible limit recommended by World Health Organization (WHO) and Indian standard Institute (ISI).From the results present study reveals that most of the bore well water is of poor quality and it is unfit for drinking purpose.
