    Abstract :

    In this study, the area in Udham Singh Nagar district, Uttarakhand is selected to analyse the quality of groundwater. The sources of contamination were assessed by creating an information system using open source Geographic Information System (GIS) and also by analysing the groundwater quality using water quality index (WQI). Groundwater samples were collected in three different seasons i.e. pre-monsoon, monsoon and post-monsoon from 15 different water sources and were analysed for 13 various physico-chemical and biological parameters. A comparison, between analysed results and desirable limits as mentioned in IS: 10500:1991 was done. Information system comprises the results generated by spatial mapping of different parameters in the area as well as the results generated after running essential queries. For the assessment using WQI, the mean values were taken into consideration as the characteristic values to observe and analyse the variations during three different seasons, also the probable reasons of the increase in or decrease in values of water quality parameters are discussed.
