Dhanbad, a major coal mining area of India for more than a century, is situated in the middle of the Damodar river basin. The thickness, size, extent and openness of the weathered zone and the interconnections of fractures govern the groundwater movement in the Dhanbad area of Jharkhand and the depth to ground water generally ranges from 2 to 10 m below ground level. Urbanisation and the unregulated growth of the population have altered the terrain and slope morphology of the area. As a consequence, changes have taken place in the surface drainage system which indirectly affects the hydrogeology while the water infiltration ratio has resulted in a lowering of the groundwater. Inadequate environmental protection measures in the coal mining and related industries as well as the presence of active and abandoned coal mines, waste dumps, coal washeries, coking coal plants, thermal power plants, refractories, steel, fertilizer and cement plants have resulted in significant water pollution. In this paper study had been conducted in all the nine block of district Dhanbad. Randomly five villages were selected from each block with well or handpump were selected according to the availability and water sampling, testing and analysis done for pH, EC, TDS, Salinity, Fe, Mn and Zn availability followed by its assessmentand management
