Most of the people in rural areas depend on bore wells, open wells and hand pumps for drinking water. The present investigation was undertaken to study the level of fluoride ions in the groundwater of Mangladevi region by collecting 32 samples of the groundwater from 14 different villages during February 2013 to March 2013. The fluoride concentration in the underground water of these villages varied from 0.00 mg/l to 1.98 mg/l. Majority of the water samples were within permissible limits according to Indian as well as WHO standards except the samples SKP-15, SKP-16, SKP-17 and SKP-18 of north zone of Mangladevi region which are above the permissible limit (>1.5 mg/l).Also dental and skeletal fluorosis was noticed in Dhamak and Kurhegaon village of north zone hence removal of excess fluoride and supply of high-quality groundwater with safe concentration of fluoride is very necessary.
