In view of associated environmental problems and their impacts on public health and safety, efforts must be made to minimize waste generation; systematic disposal practices must be followed. Hence, this study aims at a better understanding of spatial and temporal changes of unplanned dumping sites from 2006 to 2018. Google earth mapping is one of most advanced method for identification of rock solid waste clearly for collecting on satellite image data. This paper is centered on application of Google images in assessing the temporal changes of solid waste at limestone quarries in and around Yerraguntla. Time series multi date Google Earth Imageries of 2006 to 2018 are used to demarcate the evolutionary changes in Limestone waste disposal management and to understand the spatial and temporal changes that happened due to the changes by expanding the rock waste dump around Yerraguntla village, YSR district, A.P. Contamination in drinking water is the most common form of environmental problems encountered in water resources management.
