Physic-chemical factors' check for water in 6 region at Madurai have been performed. Five samplings have been selected from bore well, and a Company pipe supply. The chemical grade has been compared by the drinking water grade criteria. Some factors such as pH, turbidity, chloride, electrical conductivity, sulfate, whole hardness, dissolved oxygen, whole dissolved solids, biochemical oxygen demand and alkalinity have been investigated. The investigation demonstrates that the bore well water excluding at site S_3 is unsuitable to drink. Company pipe supply water and bore well water sampling of S_3 could be utilized to drink objective water after pretreatment.
