Assessment of physicochemical characteristics of drinking water have numerous and severe implication for public health. Ground water as well as the stream water is the main source of drinking water in rural area of Chawmanu R.D. Block, Tripura, India. In the present study water is collected from different locations of 3 Gaon Panchayat of the said area. Physicochemical parameters are analysed in March, 2014. Results of the study reveals the fact that the water sources are very much polluted and

To overcome such problems Government authority as well as other public organization should come forward to cope up this problem and provided safe drinking water for the rural residents of Tripura state particularly at Chawmanu.
