Impact of flyash on soil quality due to heavy metals of the surrounding area of Feroze Gandhi thermal power station (Unchahar)
Present study was conducted around to the Feroze Gandhi thermal power station, Unchahar for the speciation of heavy metals contamination of soil. The presence of fly ash, particularly unweather ones, shows a tendency of accumulating elements like Zn (2.42- 3.45 mgkg-1), Cu (1.41- 1.72 mgkg-1), Fe (39.48 - 54.76 mgkg-1) and Pb (1.35- 1.87 mgkg-1). All heavy metals were increased in 500 m distance in all direction. So there was high amount of fly ash present and the region of heavy metal presence at near of power station. Due to Fumigation and Looping plume behavior. So the heavy metals Zn Cu, Fe and Pb were presence in soil, the soil is not suitable for agricultural crops
