This paper illustrates about the study of various bio-chemical parameters of water at various places in Hazaribag district viz areas of Lake of Hazaribag, Charwa Dam and running tap water. Bacterial and fungal load and others parameters were analyzed for the period of three months (1st January 2016 to 31st March 2016).Comparative study of the above water samples suggest that running tap water meets some parameters of drinking water and are within the permissible limit (detailed mentioned in full paper).
