Assessment of Physico-Chemical status of ground water samples in Tirunelveli District, Tamil Nadu
Fresh water resource is becoming day by day at the faster rate of deterioration of the water quality is now a global problem. The physico-chemical status of ground water samples at different sites were determined, which is mainly used for drinking purpose. The physico-chemical parameter like temperature, pH, electrical conductivity[EC], total dissolved solids(TDS), turbidity, dissolved oxygen(DO), total alkalinity(TA), total hardness(TH), calcium(Ca++), magnesium(Mg++), sodium(Na+), potassium(K+), Chloride(Cl-), fluoride(F-), nitrate(No3-), sulphate(So42-) and phosphate(Po43-) of bore well was determined by adopting the standard method. The results were compared with standards prescribed by WHO and ISI. It was found that the ground water was contaminated at few sampling sites S1, S5, S6, S7, S8 and S14. The sampling sites S2, S3, S4, S10 and S13 showed physico-chemical parameters within the water quality standards and the quality of water quality is good and it is fit for drinking purpose.
