Water quality of groundwater is getting deteriorated due to the percolation of polluted water in to the soils from the wastewater drains, polluted rivers and ponds making it unsuitable for drinking and other purposes. Evaluation of the groundwater quality is gaining attention now days. In the present study, groundwater quality of the Derabassi and Panchkula region along Ghaggar is being studied. Water quality index was calculated for the sample and it was observed that out of the twenty samples
