This study was focused to reveal the current heavy metal contamination status in groundwater samples collected from Ariyalur district. This research was done at the site of the Cement industries, in Ariyalur district. We investigated only four heavy metals (Cr, Pb, Cu and Zn) contamination in the groundwater samples of research area. Flame AAS (Atomic Absorption Spectrometer) technique was used to determine these four heavy metals concentration. This result showed that Chromium concentration is

These metals contamination in groundwater is answerable for the maintenance of harmfulness in farming crops and domestic use water.
