The scope of present work was to analyze the components of water samples in order to ensure the purity of the ground water collected from various regions of Guntur district, Andhra Pradesh. The collected sample was tested for various components such as chlorides, sulfates, total dissolved solids, pH, hardness and microbial analysis was also performed. According to standard criteria, the chloride content should not exceed 15026.9418 ppm, herein all the analyzed samples chloride content was within the limits. The presence of sulfates for the tested samples within limits except for the sample numbers 3,5,7,8, and 12 which were exceeding the limits. The results for all samples for total dissolved solids (TDS) and pH were also within limits. For no one sample, the hardness was falling within limits. The microbial assay was performed for total 13 samples. The excess of microorganisms was present in samples 2 and 3. The ground water collected from different areas with a time interval of 6 months were tested for same components and the observed variations were reported.
