The water is very crucial liquid mainly used for agriculture and industrial activities. Water is the basic necessity for the functioning for all life forms that exist on the Earth. It will not be wrong to say that water is the reason behind regulation and maintenance of Earth. It is one of the most plentiful and essential of compounds. Present study was aimed at investigating important trace metals like Iron, Copper, Manganese, Lead, Cadmium, Zinc and Fluoride. The present research work was carried in January to December 2021 at Paithan city which is one of the holy places located in Aurangabad (district), Maharashtra. In the present research work samples were collected standard methods and analyzed by using the Spectrophotometer. Samples were collected in the plastic cans which are cleaned before sample collection with nitric acid and distilled water. The average values of the trace metals found in the suitable range. The average value of Iron was 0.40, Copper 0.37, Manganese 0.21, Lead 0.39, Cadmium 0.02, Zinc 0.17 and Fluoride was 1.57 (µg/L). It is observed that water quality of river as partially suitable for drinking purpose further, it is suggested that the water used in the of form river need to be purified, treated and used. The present research work will be very helpful for future researcher.
