PHYSIO-CHEMICAL AND MICROBIAL ANALYSIS OF DRINKING WATER IN PARBHANI CITY, MAHRASHTRA, INDIARAJESH KUMAR SAHU, K.B. SATPUTE, C.D. BHONG AND V.V. DESHMUKH
The present study was conducted on water samples from different areas of Parbhani city (Maharashtra). Collected samples were subjected to qualitative analysis of parameters such as sulphate, nitrate, nitrite, chloride, ammonia, fluoride, cyanide, pH, colour, odour, taste with quantitative analysis of parameters such as hardness, total solid (TS) and bacteriological examination. All the samples had chloride and sulphate and no samples had fluoride and cyanide detection on basis of qualitative estimation. The hardness and total solids (TS) of bore well water, municipal water samples collected are 462.4±27.46 mg/L, 73.28±1.30 mg/L, 1348±40.04 mg/L, 928±19.59 mg/L. pH of collected bore well water and municipal water samples 7.66±0.08 and 7.18±0.03. Taste of all samples somewhat bitter and other parameters were being normal. The MPN values, 11 index/100 mL of bore well and 6 index/100 mL of municipal supply. The organisms isolate from water samples were E.coli, Salmonella spp, Enterobacter spp, Streptococcus spp, Staphyllococcus spp. From the samples of bore well 65% shows E.coli contaminated and in municipal supply it is 30%. The TVC count of bore well water sample showed (10.13 ± 0.21) × 105 cfu/mL and municipal supply water having (5.03±0.15)×105 cfu/mL.
