One of the most important crises of this century is the scarcity of water. The accelerated growth of industries and the indiscriminated discharge of the industrial waste water around their peripheries are causing heavy damage to the groundwater quality. The research paper consists of the assessment or the study of the water samples collected from 55 locations in Aurangabad city out of which 70% samples are collected from industrial areas while the remaining ones are of domestic bore and dug wells. The various geo-chemical parameters of the groundwater samples were firstly determined and then they were studied by adopting certain standard geochemical laboratory methods denoted by APHA (2002) book and also in Trivedi and Gohel (1984). Later on Arc GIS software was used to make maps out of the data collected. From the study we finally have come to a conclusion that most samples that were collected from the study area are polluted.
