Abstract Human impact on nature has risen drastically as the scope and intensity of human activities has increased. Although there has been progress recently in tackling air and water pollution problems in some countries many negative trends, such as loss of tropical forests and contaminated water are more acute. Hence, In our study, the ground water samples were taken from twelve pond water samples from Nipani town and analyzed every month throughout the year. The results revealed that the pond water samples from the localities near the sugar industries and sewage disposal sites contained residual chlorine (25-28 mg/l). The seasonal analysis indicated that the levels of residual chlorine were generally least in summer and more in winter season and low during rainy season. The higher level of residual chlorine at winter season deteriorate quality of groundwater in the vicinity of Nipani town, making it unfit for drinking purpose, which can be serious problem in future. During present investigation groundwater pollution was evaluated with the measurement of levels of residual chlorine contents. Keywords: Pond water Sample , Pollutants, Residual Chlorine, sewage.
