The Sitakund hot springs situated in a region of Munger district Bihar, India are a natural geothermal springs or discharge of ground water with elevated temperature with respect to surrounding and supposed to cure off many bone related diseases like arthritis, and are also equivalently used in treatment of skin infections and gastrointestinal diseases. Hence a complete detailed study of the Physico-Chemical properties of these hot spring water of Sitakund region is required. For this purpose twelve different Physico-Chemical parameters of the water samples collected from three selected sites were analyzed by UV-visible spectroscopic methods, Titrimetric methods and Potable kit methods. Physical parameters like Temperature, Electrical Conductivity, Total Dissolved Solid, Chemical parameters like pH, Calcium Hardness, Magnesium Hardness, Total Hardness, Total Alkalinity and Ionic parameters like Sodium, Potassium, Calcium, Magnesium, Chloride, Sulphate of water samples of Sitakund main site, Hand pump site and Bardah village hot water reservoir site were analyzed. A comparison with W.H.O. standards showed that the water samples of Sitakund region Munger are suitable for drinking and bathing purposes. However Bardah village hot water spring reservoir site near Sitakund region has higher concentrations of Total Dissolved Solid than main site Sitakund as well as Hand pump site of Sitakund region
