The present work is employed in Sweta Nadhi Basin, Water quality data for 34 control wells collected from Groundwater Division for the year 1980-2010 are taken into consideration for the analysis. These observation wells are regularly maintained by the Public Works Department of Government of Tamil Nadu. The aim of the study was to determine the suitability of water for irrigation during post monsoon and pre monsoon on the basis of the quality indices of water for irrigation. Water quality data used in the analysis include Hydrogen Ion Concentration (PH), Total Hardness as (TH), Total Dissolved Solids (TDS), Permeability Index (PI), Electrical Conductivity (EC), Sodium Adsorption Ratio (SAR), Sodium Soluble Percent (SSP), Residual Sodium Carbonate (RSC) for during pre monsoon (July) and post monsoon (December) seasons of the Sweta Nadhi Basin.
