Fluoride in ground water naturally present in various minerals of earth. The presence of fluoride causes many health problems to human beings. Low cost brick powder as an adsorbent used to reduce fluoride contamination from ground water. The investigation was carried out on the adsorption of fluoride ion to analyze effect of various parameters like pH, contact time, adsorbent dose and initial concentration. Batch adsorption study was conducted to analyze the adsorption of fluoride in ground water. The experiment studies shows that maximum removal of fluoride in ground water by using brick powder adsorbent is 56 % at optimum conditions.
