An investigation was carried out in Ramu during the period of 2013 to assess the magnitude of important quality parameters including pH, As, Fe, EC, DO, Cl-, SO4-, NO3-, HCO3-, Fe and Turbidity which influence the ground water quality. This is a qualitative study and this study also find out the correlation among As and other important quality parameters. The study revealed that the As concentration was found ranging from nil to <0.01mg/l which is far below the Bangladesh (0.05mg/l) and WHO (0.01mg/l) standard, Mean Fe concentration showed highest value 30.8mg/l in low depth between 20-50ft depth classes. As concentration of the ground water was a negative correlation with depth, Fe, Turbidity, EC, NO3-, Cl- while the correlation was positive for age, HCO3-, SO4-, pH and DO at 5% and 1% level. The study showed that groundwater quality containing these parameters in terms of depth and age is significantly different from the union to union.
