Abstract  

In most of the Indian cities drinking water is drawn from shallow aquifers with the help of hand pumps. These shallow aquifers get easily polluted. In the present work we have measured 20 trace elements using Neutron Activation Analysis (NAA) and 8 chemical parameters using standard chemical methods of drinking water drawn from Rajpura city. It was found that almost all water samples are highly polluted. We attribute this to unplaned disposal of industrial and domestic waste over a period of many decades.
