The City of Hathras due to its thick population, unplanned constructions, unseemly habits and also being a big grain and subji mandi is reeling under the unhygienic conditions caused by the ambient pollution. The Pollution in the city further aggravated by the protracted influx of grain traders, farmers and commission agents who make the environment gravely morbid. Lack of proper drainage and sewerage systems have brought about the traumatic conditions in the city. Water borne diseases are menacing the city population. The elite class of the citizens and intellectuals simply grumble and condemn the ignoramous attitude of the local administration. As such the author felt as imperative need for investigating physico-chemical pollution which is posing hazards to the public health.The plan of the study comprehends physico-chemical investigation of ground water at six important sectors of the city. The authors feel that the present study and the work would certainly draw attention of administration and big wigs seated at the helm of affairs of this city famous for small scale industries such as carpet weaving, making asafetida, scissors and knives, toilet and laundry soaps, textiles industries and oil expellers.
