Leena Pande, Dr. DC Gupta and C KrishnaAbstract:
The study of fluoride, north of Nasrullaganj area has been carried out and 35 water samples have been collected from the area. The study of these samples reveals some anomalous values of fluoride in groundwater near Nasrullaganj area. The analysis was carried out following the BIS (2012) and APHA (2012) standards. The study reveals that 50% of the samples are below desirable limit, 44% samples within acceptable range and only 6% samples are above the permissible limit. High values of fluoride are being reported apparently due to heavy usage of groundwater for irrigational and drinking water purposes. The highest value reported is 3.31 mg/L and lowest 0.14 mg/L. The problem needs attention to avoid the health hazards associated with fluoride contamination in groundwater as this may come up as a major heath issue.Pages: 19-25 | Views: 176 | Downloads: 9Download Full Article: Click Here
