Groundwater vulnerability assessment is a basic work for groundwater exploitation and protection. The Chaoyang district of Beijing was selected and investigated in this study. Groundwater vulnerability index system in Chaoyang district was constructed based on hydrogeological settings of local region, the human influence and the DRASTIC model. The comprehensive vulnerability assessment was carried out with weights of 0.4 and 0.6 for the intrinsic vulnerability and the specific vulnerability, respectively. In this study, total 9 hydrogeological parameters were considered, and the diagram of groundwater vulnerability assessment results in Chaoyang District was obtained by using DRASTIC index and overlay weighted method. The groundwater quality is poor in the southwest of Chaoyang District. The correlation analysis between total hardness, total dissolved solids and vulnerability results was carried out, and the correlation results were 06 and 0.7, respectively. The area with high groundwater vulnerability is also the regions with serious groundwater pollution, indicating that the assessment results are objective and reasonable, which can provide prevention and control of groundwater reference for the management department in the future, so as to reduce the risk of pollution.
