Quantitative study of fluoride content in correlation with various quality parameters of drinking water
Water provides a unique medium to many physical, chemical and Biochemical Processes. Any minute change in water quality parameter may adversely and favorably affect the ecosystem as well as biological and industrial process. Fluoride in low concentration of 0.5 to 1.5ppm is beneficial for human health but its excess amount can cause serious health hazards and can interfere with various industrial synthetic pathway. In present study drinking water samples from various recourses of Punjab and northern Rajasthan have been analyzed in triplicate with respect to pH, alkalinity, Total hardness, turbidity, Cl-, SO42-, Ca2+, Mg2+ and F- content. The area under study is extension of peninsular block and mainly composed of quartzite, sandstone, micaschilt, phyllitis etc. which are responsible for high F- content in area. In this study F- content water sample is correlated with the depth, alkalinity, pH, total hardness and carbonate content. The study will be helpful to many water quality analysts, biologists, ecologists, environmentalists and industrialists.
