The present investigation has been focused in Bishrampur and Bhadgao regions of Surguja Coal field area since these are major coal mining areas of Surguja district which are prone for ecological imbalance. The sampling method was based on primary and secondary data collection during the research study in three areas namely Coal mining area, Forest area, and Urban area. The water samples were collected in the month of November’2010 from hand pumps, tube wells and ponds, were considered under primary data collection technique and its Temperature, pH, E.C, T.S, TDS, TSS, Alkalinity, TH, D.O, BOD, COD, F-, Cl-, SO42-, NO3- etc. were determined using pH meter, titration, water analyzer and spectrophotometer etc. It was found that deteriorating water quality due to mining, continued to ruin the health standards of local people, reduced the number of flora and fauna, reduced the agricultural land area and it constrained farmers to migrate, this led to increased entropy in ecology of Bishrampur and Bhadgao regions causing an ecological imbalance.
