Abstract:
Groundwater is one of the important water resources because of its wide use for irrigation purpose. Due to urbanization and industrialization, quality of groundwater is rapidly declining. The present study was conducted to evaluate the groundwater quality and its suitability for irrigation purpose for South Sindhudurg district. The study was carried out with groundwater data collected from 2016-17 to 2020-21. The Water Quality Index was ascertained by considering multiple physio-chemical parameters like pH, Electrical Conductivity, Total Dissolved Solids, Total Hardness, Alkalinity, Calcium, Magnesium, Sodium and Potassium. The spatial distribution map of WQI was generated using the Raster Interpolation technique, Inverse Distance Weighted (IDW) in QGIS software. The result shows that the groundwater in the study area is in ‘Excellent’ category which means it can be used for irrigation purpose.
