Groundwater is an important water resource for domestic, irrigation, and industrial needs. The most widely exploited use of this resource is for consumption. Assessment of potability of any ground water samples is a non-trivial task. A new fuzzy rule based system has been proposed to assess the quality of ground-water samples collected from the bore-wells across 24 districts of Karnataka (South India). Eight groundwater quality salts parameters are selected for water quality analysis. A

The system showed that out of 24 districts of Karnataka state, ground water from 51.78% bore-wells was not feasible for consumption.
