In present study, the quality of groundwater in Rewari block of Rewari district of Haryana state was examined.The district is surrounded by Jhajjar and Bhiwani districts in North, Gurgaon district in north-east, Mahendergarh district in west and Alwar district of Rajasthan in the South and South-East. In total, 143 groundwater samples from running tube wells from the block were analysed during 2013-2014for ionic concentration of CO32−, HCO3−, Cl−, SO42−, NO3−, F−, Ca2+, Mg2+, Na+, K+. Subsequently, electrical conductivity (EC), sodium absorption ratio (SAR) and residual sodium carbonate (RSC) were also calculated. According to AICRP classification, 39, 18, 10, 17, 3, 9 and 4 % waters in Rewari block were found to be in good, marginal saline, saline, high SAR saline, marginal alkali, alkali and highly alkali, respectively. Whereas according to Manchanda classification, 41, 19, 10, 13 and 17 % waters of Rewari block were classified under good, marginal, saline, sodic and saline sodic categories, respectively. The highest ECe in Rewari block was observed in village Chandawas (6.29 dSm−1) and lowest was found in village Janti (1.30 dSm−1). Residual sodium carbonate (RSC) and sodium absorption ratio (SAR) varied from nil to 9.65 me l-1, 1.14to 19.45 (mmol -1)1/2. Spatial variable maps of EC, SAR, RSC and water quality of groundwater used for irrigation in the block were prepared through GIS to study spatial variability.
