Industries are the main resources for sustainable growth of the economy, but to allow waste water from industries create a lot of pollution in ground water and surface water. In this regard Jeedimetla industries association is one of the sources for the release of leachate. About 23 leachate samples are collected; they are filtered in canals, open ground, and lakes. By using UV spectrophotometer estimated the Arsenic, Nickel, Mercury and Nitrite, Nitrate mg/l. The toxic chemical percentage is very heavy, so most of the soil, water, and air is polluted. Thematic maps of toxic elements and physical parameters mainly concentrated in west side and Northeastern side of Jeedimetla village and its surroundings. The villages with good water quality resources available are Ramireddy Nagar, Maisammagudem and Bahadurpally, the main reason is industries far away from these areas. The villages with poor water quality are Dhulapally, Kaziguda, Jeedimetla, Chintal, Suraram and Apurupa colony. The water in the areas standard fall down due to industries drain on the surface. Arsenic values are high in Jeedimetla and Apurupa colony, it is very harmful to health. The government will take serious action immediately to stop drains of toxic element water or has to implement strict rules on the purification of water. Statistical analysis of the correlation matrix shows the relation between parameters EC, DO, Alkalinity, Fluoride, Nitrite, and Nitrate have positive relationships and remaining are negative. Positive relation is week 0.3 to <0.6 and strong relation is 0.6>.
