Physico-Chemical Analysis of Ground Water Quality in Different Wards of South Zone of Bhusawal, Tehsil Bhusawal, Dist Jalgaon (Maharashtra)Author(s): S. R. Narkhede
Physico-chemical analysis of ground water quality in different wards of south zone of Bhusawal Tehsil, Bhusawal was studied. The samples we collected from seven different wards or sampling points of the south zone of Bhusawal of Jalgaon District of Maharashtra State in December 2009. The parameters of physico-chemical analysis of ground water studied were temperature, pH, total hardness, total alkalinity, chloride, TDS, calcium and magnesium. The ionic concentrations are expressed in terms of mg/L. In case of analysis of ground water quality. It was found that the alkalinity, hardness, calcium and magnesium were high and much above the desirable limits. The effect of long term continuous extensive irrigation by underground water and application of increasing amount of chemical fertilizers & insecticides over years on water and soil quality of this area has been discussed.
