E. Naiina and E.T. Puttaiah

Abstract

This paper deals with Physico-chemical analysis of ground water of Ka dur taluk area. The analysis of Bore well water is carried out to examine its suitability for drinking purposes. For the analysis the ground water samples were collected both from the bore well and hand pumps of the area. The data generated was compared with reference to BIS and WHO standards 1991. It is found that some of the physicochemical parameters are within the maximum permissible limits of drinking water standards. However, fluoride ras found to be less than lmg/L in about 25% of the bore well sample studied. While about 80% of the samples showed more of hardness. Further the other parameters such as conductivity, TDS, nitrates and iron were found to be high in about in 10-12% sample. The study also reveals that the ground water of area is very hard and is dominated by carbonate and bicarbonate anion with calcium and magnesium cations.
