Abstract  

The groundwater from the south-eastern part of Pune city has been assessed for the seasonal variation in their quality parameters. Using Piper diagram the hydrogeochemical facies were identified and the groundwaters were classified with regards to the changes in their major chemical compositions. Based on the hydrogeochemical facies it has been found that the groundwater regime is severly deteriorated by the anthropogernic activities. Although the area of Manjari, Hadapsar and uruli Devachi show high influx of pollutants in rainy season the Mantarwadi and Fursungi area have strong influence of leachate throughout the year.
