STUDIES ON THE FLUORIDE CONTENT OF GODAVARI RIVER WATER AT NANDEDA.B. Bhosle, R.K. Narkhede, Balaji Rao and P.M. Patil
Fluoride is a component of over 80 minerals, the most widely recognized of which are fluroapatite, fluorite and cryolite, but in most rocky regions. It occurs mainly in silicate minerals. Natural waters vary in chemical composition and the factors controlling the composition include physical, chemical and biological processes.Water is one of the most important natural resources for all the living organisms, because it is required for various metabolic activities. In addition, water is required for various domestic purposes, irrigational, sanitation, power generation and for the industries.Amongst various organic components, the fluoride is an important parameter required for all the biological systems.The occurrence of fluoride, in the present study was carried in Godavari river from the two sampling stations. The importance of fluoride content for the living system is very much known.The excess fluoride has several effects due to the storage of fluoride in high concentration.The fluoride was analyzed regularly from samples of Godavari river water...The study was carried out for one year (January 1999 to December 1999) and the significance of fluoride is discussed in the present investigation.
