ASSESSMENT OF SOME HYDROPHYTES IN DESALINATION OF DESERT WATERS

Deepak Saigal and M.M. Saxena

Abstract

The application of three hydrophytes, Eichornia, Hydrilla and Vallisnaria, is explored in desalination of desert waters as a cheep biotechnological solution to improve the quality of the resource. Hydrilla is found to efficiently reduce the salinity (EC,TDS) by bringing down kla*, K*, Ca* Mg* and SO,- Vallisnaria too was effective by bringing down Ca*, Mg+ and CI-.The role of Eichornia in reducing the salinity of water was very efficient through uptake of Na, K÷, a and SO4.-
