Investigations on the presence of chromium and cadmium metals in water using spectrophotometer from Siddheshwar dam in district Hingoli, Maharashtra state of India was studied during the period of July 2010 to June 2011. The chromium and cadmium are heavy metals used in a variety of industrial applications which are highly toxic to humans, animals, plants and microorganisms. The water was found to be uncontaminated with cadmium and contaminated with chromium when compared with their standard limits for drinking water prescribed by different organizations.
