Arif Qureshi and Dr. CS ArmoAbstract:
In the present work groundwater samples were collected from twenty different locations of Raya Block, Mathura U.P. The collected groundwater samples were analysed for physiochemical parameters by using the standard methods as mentioned in Adoni et al
., 1985 and APHA, 2005.The obtained results were compared World Health Organization (WHO) and Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS). Results show that Total Dissolved Solids (TDS), Total Hardness (TH), Mg2+ and Cl- are found to be higher than permissible limit when compared with the guidelines of the WHO and BIS. The WQI values in the study area ranged from 40.4 to 117.5. The overall WQI clearly indicates that the quality of groundwater in Raya Block belongs to poor categories as for as portability for human consumption is concerned.Pages: 49-53 | Views: 86 | Downloads: 12Download Full Article: Click Here
