Abstract: The present study was carried out to assess the presence of heavy metals in ground water of Barara block of Ambala district during pre-monsoon and monsoon session, 2015. A total 30 ground water samples were collected from 30 different villages of Barara block of Ambala district. All the water samples were tested positive for the presence of heavy metals. The cadmium, chromium, copper, lead, iron and zinc concentration in groundwater varied from 0.004-0.01, 0.02-0.05, 0.216-0.877, 0.033-0.057, 0.118-0.485 and 2.0-3.99 mg/l respectively. The highest concentration reported was for the Zn metal ions. The obtained results of the water quality parameters clearly revealed that groundwater of Barara block was safe for drinking purposes as all the tested metal ions concentration were found within the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS).
