Abstract: The water and environment has become an emotive issue for the people and policy makers. The chief causes for the pollution of water and environment are anthropogenic activities of human beings. Studies of Physico-chemical parameters of groundwater quality based on Physico-chemical paratmeres have been taken from eight blocks of Sonbhadra district, Uttar Pradesh was conducted in pre monsoon season of the year 2016 to evaluate its suitability for domestics’ purpose. The quality analysis has been made through the pH, EC, TDS, Cations like Sodium, Pottassium, Calcium, Magnesium, Anions like Carbonate, Bicarbonate, RSC, SAR and iron. A systematic calculation of the correlation coffecient has also been used between different analyzed parameters. Comparative studies of samples in different blocks were conducted and it was found that the value of Electrical Conductivity and Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) for standard deviation mean is + 0.31 and + 208.32 respectively. The majority of groundwater samples on the basis of salinity (EC) were found to be medium to high salinity class, but on the basis of sodicity (SAR) and alkalinity (RSC) more than 90 % samples were found to be normal. On the basis of cationic and anionic composition of groundwater it can be concluded that the groundwater of Sonbhadra district is Na-Mg-Ca type.
