P. B. VYAS

Abstract

A study of the groundwater of Gandhinagar town in Gujarat was carried out to examine its suitability for drinking purpose. Groundwater forms the major source of drinking water supply in the municipal area of Gandhinagar town. For the analysis of groundwater, eighty-four water samples were collected from the tap water system located in different areas of the town. The data were analyzed with reference to BIS and WHO standards and it was found that the physicochemical parameters are well within the maximum permissible limit of drinking water standards. However, low fluoride content (mean 0.6 mg/L) is observed in all groundwater samples and high iron content (mean 0.45 mg/L) in 13% of the samples. The study also revealed that groundwater of area is very hard and is dominated by carbonate and bicarbonate anion with calcium and magnesium cations
