A study was carried out to determine the content of Mn and Cr in the ground water in Seoul area, where municipal water supply system was not installed, from Nov. 1 to Nov. 30, 1973. In this study, authors examined the hardness, pH, water temperature and Cl ion to investigate the general conditions of the ground water. For this study, samples were collected from 46 wells which were located in outpart of Seoul city, and Mn and Cr were determined with the Spectronic-20. The following results were obtained: 1) Average value of the ground water conditions of the wells were 13.3$\circ$C in temperature, pH 6.3, hardness 159 ppm and Cl ion 41 ppm. 2) In the manganese concentration, the highest area was Yeongdeungpo-Ku(0.318 ppm), while the lowest area was Sungbuk-Ku(0.065 ppm) and the mean concentration of the whole district was 0.196 ppm. 3) In the chrome concentration, the highest area was Yeongdeungpo-Ku(0.031 ppm), while the lowest area was Dobong-Ku (trace) and the mean concentration of the whole district was 0.012 ppm.
