Physico-Chemical &Microbial Assessment of Ground Water of DCM Industrial Area and Its Adjoining Areas, Kota [India].Part I

Abstract

Pre Monsoon Ground water samples were collected from different locations of DCM Industrial area and adjoining areas for physico chemical and microbial studies. Analysis of samples for PH, TDS, Conductivity, Turbidity, Odour, Nitrate, Sulphate, Phosphate, Dissolved Oxygen, Hardness, Chlorides, Fluorides, Nitrate, Sodium, Potassium and Chemical Oxygen Demand(COD),Biological Oxygen Demand(BOD), Alkalinity, Free NH4, Coli form Organism, Fe+2, As, Cu, Zn along with EC and Coli form Organism indicate towards major health concerns of living beings. On comparing results with drinking water quality standards laid down by WHO, it is found that most of the water samples are non potable for human beings due high concentration of one parameters or the other. Most of the samples have EC, free NH4, Coli form Organism much higher than the maximum permissible levels set up by WHO which are 300 μmhos/cm, 1.2 mg/L,<500 mg/L respectively. The high values of these parameters have health implications require adequate time bound remedial measures.
