This report describes the groundwater quality of the five southern states of India, namely Maharashtra, Andra Pradesh, Orissa, Karnataka and Tamil Nadu, in which WaterAid has current programmes. These five southern states cover an area of around 900,000 km 2 (around 1500 km north to south) and vary in terrain from upland plateau in the Deccan region to lowland alluvial plains along the eastern coastal area. The highest point, with an altitude of 2636 m, lies in the Nilgiri Hills in Tamil Nadu, although peaks of similar altitude occur in neighbouring Kerala.
