Water is the basic element of social and economic infrastructure and is essential for healthy society and sustainable development. Groundwater is the favorite alternative is facing threats due to anthropogenic activities in Pakistan, which has lead due to deterioration in groundwater quality. Hence monitoring of ground water quality has become indispensable. In this study ground water quality analysis was carried out for industrial zone of Faisalabad city. Sixty water samples were collected all around the zone. The strategically analyzed results are presented in GIS based water quality mapping. The collected samples were analyzed for physio-chemical parameters such as total hardness, alkalinity, cadmium, arsenic, nickel, lead and fluoride and the results were compared with WHO guidelines. The values of these results were represented by mapping of quality parameters using ArcView GIS v9.3 and IDW was used for raster interpolation. It was concluded that water is partially not fit for drinking and direct use of this groundwater may cause health issues
