A study on physico-chemical analysis of ground water near industrial area, Warangal, Telangana, India
Groundwater is an essential and vital component of our life support system. The deterioration in the groundwater quality due to geogenic and anthropogenic activities has drawn great attention as it is the major alternate source of domestic and drinking water supply. The present study aims to identify the ground water contamination problem in areas located in the close vicinity of industrial area at Warangal (Telangana), India. Ground water samples were collected from different locations at the depth of 40- 120 feet from earth’s surface layer. Analytical techniques as described in the standard Methods for examination of water and waste water were adopted for physico-chemical analysis of ground water samples and the results compared with the standards given by WHO and BIS guidelines for drinking water. The present investigation carried out analyzed for various parameters like PH, Electrical conductivity, Turbidity, Total dissolved solids, Total hardness, Sodium, Potassium, Flouride and Chloride. From the overall analysis, it was observed that there was a slight fluctuation in the physico-chemical parameters among the water samples studied. The water samples collected from the industrial area compared with other two locations and account for health hazards for human use.
