A review study of groundwater quality of Malwa region, Punjab
Ground water pollution has been one of the main topics in the environmental issue of Punjab, northern India. This study was conducted to find out the pollution situation of ground water and the health problem of the surrounding residents. The results clearly determine that the water quality of Ground water may not be in a position to suitable for using domestic purpose. This is indicated by the very low dissolved oxygen (DO) levels and other measured parameters in the river. The maximum recorded values of pH, color, turbidity, biochemical oxygen demand (BOD5), hardness, total dissolved solids (TDS), chloride (Cl-),chemical oxygen demand (COD), turbidity, BOD, hardness, TDS, and COD found in the ground water of Punjab is much higher than the standard permissible limit.
