Author(s): Shyama Nair

Analysis of borewell water and open well water of coastal areas of Alappuzha district was carried out to evaluate its potability. The physico-chemical analysis of the sixty four open well waters and seventeen bore well waters was carried out by standard methods. The results show that hardness and alkalinities were in excess in some areas and concentration of fluoride was also found to be high in some of the sampling sites. Excess of these water parameters in potable water is a cause of concern amongst the inhabitants of that area .The aim of the study is to highlight the contamination in the ground water resources of the selected study area
