In the present investigation the appearance of arsenic, pH and electrical conductivity in hand pump and sources of irrigation water of Ambagarh Chowki, Rajnandgaon district, (C.G.). Out of the 160 samples we analysed, ten villages were found to be contaminated with arsenic during pre and post monsoon seasons. Results indicated that total concentration of arsenic in pre-monsoon season water samples of the study area varied from 0.0011 to 0.773 mg L-1 with mean value of 0.134 mg L-1 and 0.0008 to 0.602 mg L-1 with mean value of 0.134 mg L-1 in post-monsoon season. Arsenic concentration in the hand pumps (for drinking purpose) analyses ranged between 0.010 to 0.773 mg L-1 with mean value of 0.278 mg L-1 was very much above the WHO permissible limit of 0.01 mg L-1. Tube wells as a source of irrigation water analyses ranged between 0.030 to 0.557 mg L-1 with mean value 0.246 mg L-1 were also found very much above the FAO permissible limit 0.10 mg L-1. Other sources of irrigation water viz. canal & nala were observed below the FAO permissible limit. As per occurrence of high arsenic content in ground water of Kaurikasa village (0.773 mg L-1).
