WATER QUALITY ASSESSMENT OF RIVER BRAHMANI NEAR BY TALCHER-ANGUL INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX, ODISHA, INDIATRINATH BISWAL, ADYASA SAHOO, PRATAP KUMAR PANDA AND R.B. PANDA
This study was carried out to execute and determine the physico- chemical parameters of River Brahmani near Talcher- Angul industrial complex. The various samples were collected from different Ghats of Brahmani, tube wells, ponds, channels, rivers and tap waters of different colonies and areas nearby Talcher- Angul industrial complex in monsoon, pre- monsoon and post monsoon seasons. The collected water samples were analysed in P.G Department of chemistry and Department of Civil Engineering, VSSUT, Burla. The various physico- chemical parameters o fwater like pH, TH, DO, chloride and fluoride etc. were analysed by adopting proper procedure.The parameter like pH varied from 6.82 to 7.45 for surface water and found to be maximum in monsoon season and for ground water it was found to be 5.8 to 7.91. For surface water DO varied from 7.2 to 8.3 mg/L and it was 6.1 to 8.2 mg/L for ground water. The fluoride concentration varied between 1.8 to 2.38 mg/L for surface water and for ground water it was found to be between 0.21 to 0.42 mg/L. The chloride concentration varied from 298 to 462 mg/L for surface water and for ground water it was found to be between 277.0 to 425 mg/L. The fluoride concentration will be more because of huge coal mining and extensive industrial activity nearby that area. The total hardness and calcium also magnesium hardness almost less variable and found to be maximum at monsoon season because of heavy industrial surface effluents mixed with surface water.
