Authors(2) :-D. N. Joshi, M. R. Solanki

Study of the ground water quality in KeraluTaluka is an essential ingredient for a healthy population. In this study of drinking water samples for twenty water sources wells in the Kheralu field has been carried out. The purpose was to ascertain the quality of water from these sources. The samples were collected during the month of March-April, 2013 in clean polyethylenebottles. The physical properties such as PH, EC, TDS and TH,Cl-, Na+, K+, Ca+2, Mg+2, F-, S04-2 and SAR have been measured using standard techniques.
