The current research attempts to calculate the water quality index (WQI) for groundwater in the southwest section of Bangalore. This was established by taking groundwater samples from locations near the selected municipal solid waste dumping yards and analyzing them thoroughly. The 12 Physicochemical parameters are used to calculate the WQI. The parameters are pH, total hardness, calcium, magnesium, bicarbonate, and sodium bicarbonate levels have all been considered. The WQI of these samples ranges from 89.21 to 660.56. The results of the analyses have been used to create water quality index.
