There is a severe fluoride problem is Niwai Tehsil of Tonk district. Populaces are suffering from dental fluorosis and skeletal fluorosis. So that physico-chemical study of 80 villages was done. The ground water samples collected in clean polyethylene bottles were analyzed for different parameters such as pH, Total Alkalinity, Fluoride (F), Nitrate (NO3), Total Dissolved Solids (TDS), Chloride (Cl), Total Hardness (TH), Electrical Conductivity (EC), Ca-H, Mg-H by using standard techniques. Results showed that fluoride was found even up to the alarming limit of 14.62ppm. Minimum (1.10ppm) and maximum (14.62ppm) concentration of Fluoride was observed from Khendewat and Seepura villages respectively.

Key words: Dental fluorosis, Skeletal fluorosis, Total Dissolved Solids (TDS).
