HYDROCHEMISTRY AND CLASSIFICATION OF GROUNDWATERS AT GAJWEL, MEDAK DISTRICT, ASP, INDIAK. Niranjan Kumar, K. Srinivas Varma and R. Mallikarjuna Reddy
The hydrochemistry of the Gajwel, Medak district has been evaluated, as the evaluation of chemical quality of groundwater is an important aspect in its utilisation. A number of water samples have been analysed in details to classify and to understand the basic character of chemical composition of the groundwater and hydrochemical environment of the area. In order to understand the importance of quality of the groundwater and its suitability for a particular use both qualitative and quantitative studies have been carried out on the basis of chemical analysis to know the type of water and also composition and concentration of various constituents present in the water in order to establish whether the quality of groundwater of the area is suitable for different purposes.The quality fluctuations and the variations in the concentration of different ions have been identified.Thus, the analytical data has been correlated with different parameters like Wilcox diagram, U.S. Salinity Laboratory, Kelley's Index, SAR,TDS RSC and Piper's Trilinear diagram etc. and have been used to classify the basic character of chemical composition of the groundwater. Based on the hydrochemistry, utilitarian aspects of groundwater's have been classified into three major divisions viz., i) domestic / drinking criteria, ii) irrigation / agricultural water criteria and iii) industrial water criteria.
