Bio-chemical, Physical & Statistical Analysis of Hand Pumpís Water Quality in Banda, Uttar Pradesh
Ground water quality of many hand pumps at different locations of Banda city was evaluated. In the light of above facts, the above study was designed to monitor the quality of ground water of Banda city. We collected data and information related to the ground water in the proposed locations for various purposes. We performed statistical analysis of the generated data. The physio-chemical parameters investigated were colour, temperature, turbidity, electrical conductivity, pH, D.O, T.D.S, total solids, alkalinity, total hardness, calcium hardness, magnesium hardness, chloride, sodium, potassium, sulphate, nitrate, phosphate, total nitrogen, fluoride and iron. The results were compared with drinking water quality standards prescribed by WHO. The above study will be useful to know the ground water quality and their subsequent fitness or unfitness of water for drinking domestic purpose at various sites undertaken. The study will be useful to the regulatory authorities and also to the policy makers towards Hand pumps study. Most of the water samples were found to have total alkalinity and hardness values more than their permissible level. The high values of these parameters may have health complications and therefore they need attention.
