Studies of some Physicochemical Parameters of Ground Water Taken from Three Villages (Bolundra, Isrol, Jalodar) of North Gujarat

Author(s): Swanti A. Jain and K. P. Patel

Physicochemical parameters of the ground water quality are determined in three villages of North Gujarat i.e. Bolundra, Isrol and Jalodar. 10-12% Indian population has access to clean and safe drinking water while rest of the population has no access of safe drinking water. Physicochemical parameters of water at various places are changing with high pace due to anthropogenic activities. These water quality parameters were compared with ICMR standards. Some physicochemical parameters have been determined such as pH turbidity, electrical conductivity (EC), total dissolved solids (TDS), total hardness (TH), calcium (Ca2+), magnesium (Mg2+), chloride (Cl−), sulphate (SO4 2−), iron (Fe), DO, BOD, COD, total alkalinity (TA) and nitrate (NO3 −) in ground water
