Water quality not only affect the human beings but also animals and crops irrigated by water. Groundwater and surface water are two main sources for the consumption in industries, irrigation, domestic work and many other purposes. But due to unfair and selfish activities of human beings, quality of both sources gets deteriorated day by day. In the present work the physico- chemical assessment of groundwater of area near Yamuna River, passing through Aligarh district, have been carried out. Water quality of Yamuna River is very poor due to direct discharge of industrial effluents, chemicals, plastic and garbage in the river. As it moves from Delhi towards Mathura district passing through Aligarh district there are chances that it affects the quality of ground water of the area situated near the riverbank.
