Abstract
Due to rapid urbanization the developing countries are facing a great problem in disposing the municipal solid waste. The collected solid waste is dumped directly on open barren lands. During rainy season the surface run off passes through the solid waste and penetrates into the ground surface which contaminates the ground water.The Greater Chennai Corporation is divided into 15 zones, Out of which the dump site at Athipattu,Ambattur is considered to be the most oldest and largest dump site in the Central region of Chennai. The Leachate carries Chemicals and metals and when gets dissolved in ground water, contaminants the ground water. This ground water taken from open wells and when being consumed by people, it causes various health problems. In this study the level of contamination in ground water around the Athipattu dump site was assessed. For this study twelve number of ground water samples were collected for every 100m from dump site The Water Sample from open Wells were collected in four quarters for a year i.e. during the month of Jan. (1st quarter),April (2nd quarter),July(3rd quarter) and October (4th quarter) at an distance of 100m, 200m, 300m, 400m, 500m, 600m, 700m, 800m, 900m, 1000m, 1100m,1200m from Athipattu dump site. The following tests such as pH, TS, Hardness, Sulphates, Chlorides, Iron, Sodium & Potassium were carried for the samples collected. The result showed that water samples of open wells were contaminated. Therefore this open landfill is a threat for the human society and for ecology. The ground water collected is found to be contaminated when compared to WHO standards and hence it cannot be used for drinking purpose.

Key words: Solid waste, Leachate, Ground water, Water quality
