Having a safe drinking water is an internationally accepted human right. One of the ten targets of the millennium development goals report is the proportion of people without sustainable access of safe drinking water to halve by 2015. The issues of sustainability and maintenance of quality of drinking water supplied is, therefore an area of concern for all countries. If the quality of water is suitable for drinking, it can also be acceptable for other purposes. The Visakhapatnam district, in Andhra Pradesh, India experiences a dry-humid climate. Area of the Visakhapatnam district is underlined by the Precambrian Eastern Ghats and recent formations. Agriculture is the main occupation of the people. With the frequent failures of monsoon, groundwater has become a potential resource to meet several needs.
