Physico-Chemical Analysis of Ground Water Samples of Selected Villages of Mahesana Region of Gujarat State

Authors(1) :-D. N. Joshi

The present work is aimed at assessing) for the ground water of Mahesana region. This has been determined by collecting ground water sample and subjective the samples to a comprehensive physico-chemical analysis. The following 9 parameters have been considered; pH, total hardness, calcium, magnesium, bicarbonate, chloride, carbonate, sodium, total dissolved solids. The results of analysis have been used to suggest models for predicting water quality. The analysis reveals that the groundwater of the area needs some degree of treatment before consumption.
