Abstract
Groundwater is the most economic source of potable water for rural, semi-urban and urban areas in India. Non scientific disposal of solid waste from various sources pollutes the environment as well as ground water sources. The present work aims to find out the groundwater pollution at the very vicinity of landfill site at Bhanpur, Bhopal, India. The landfill site is closed for the dumping of waste since 2018 by Bhopal Municipal Corporation hence an attempt has been made to see the post closure impacts of closed dumping site on ground water resources. During the study six sampling locations were identified for the collection of samples within the periphery of dumping site. The collected water samples were analyzed for the physicochemical parameters viz., pH, Electrical conductivity, TDS, chloride, total hardness, calcium hardness, magnesium hardness, nitrate, phosphate. The results showed higher concentration of contamination in most parameters like conductivity, TDS, chloride, total hardness, calcium hardness, magnesium hardness, which exceeds the limits of standards prescribed by BIS:10500. It was found that ground water near the closed dumping site is contaminated and is not fit for direct drinking purposes.
