The provision of safe drinking water is a key development issue in India. Drinking water comes mainly from the rivers or from the existent groundwater. The composition of water varies widely with local geological conditions. Unfortunately, most of these sources are not safe for drinking without proper treatment due to presence of microbial and chemical pollutants. Since water contains small amounts of gases, minerals and organic matter from natural origin or from pollutants making us sick and also expose us to long-term health consequences such as liver and kidney damage. The only way to ensure the quality and safety of drinking water to the people is establishing the Reverse osmosis (RO) water treatment plant. Due to this reason there are more than 11 thousand demineralised plants all over the world with an overall production of more than 6 billion gallons of demineralised water per day. In the present study an attempt was made to understand the health risk of Reverse Osmosis (RO) treated water. The samples are collected from Dundigal, Bahadurpalli, Gandimaisamma, D.Pochampalli, villages of Medchal District of Telangana state. From this study it is found that the Gandimaisamma and Pochampally RO Treated water has low TDS, Alkalinity Values and not considered for ideal drinking.
