Present study was aimed to see the water quality of pond water, well water, bore well water and tap water of Kambarajapuram village, Thiruvalam, Vellore district. Water samples for the present study collected in Kambarajapuram village were analyzed for physical parameters such as Appearance, Odour, Turbidity, Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) and Electrical conductivity mic mho/cm and chemical parameters such as pH, Alkalinity, Total hardness, Mg, Fe, Na, K, Mn, NH3, NO2, NO3, Cl, F, So4, PO4 and Tidy's test content using standard methods as given by APHA and their results are depicted in table 1. The acceptable limit mentioned in the text represents the standard for drinking water quality according to WHO. Among these four water samples compared, the TDS and electrical conductivity contents were seemed to be lower in pond water as 481 and 687 and in tap waters as 382 and 545 than other two waters of well water as 1128 and 1611 and bore well water as 1062 and 1517, respectively. Other parameters were found to be fluctuated. Result of the study indicated that pond and tap waters were seemed to be suitable for potable purpose. It is concluded from this study that the fluctuation of physico-chemical variations in all the four waters of Kambarajapuram village in Thiruvalam area showed suitable for irrigation and drinking purpose. In the present study, low level of fluoride content in a range of 0.02-0.04 showed harmful effect for dental caries and its related effects as reported by many investigators.
