Organoleptic and Physico-Chemical Properties Of Under Ground and Reverse Osmosis Water Used In V.V. Nagar and Nearby Places of Dist. Anand (Gujarat)Author(s): Vasishta Bhatt*, Kuldip Gohil and Samat Ram
A report of organoleptic and physico-chemical study of the water samples taken from the region nearby Anand district of central Gujarat is presented here. Twenty five water samples are subjected to analysis like odour, taste, transparency, pH, TDS, hardness, and conductivity. The calcium, magnesium, potassium and sodium count obtained from the study of these samples has given the information regarding the suitability of the water for drinking purpose. The drop in mineral contents after reverse osmosis treatment is critically examined and the pros and cons are identified. While the pros are appreciated, remedies to cons are also suggested wherever possible.
