Physico-Chemical Quality Assessment of Ground Water at Agra District

Authors(1) :-Abhinav Krishna Singh

Ground water is contaminated due to various human and industrial activities. This is a serious problem. So the analysis of water quality is very important to preserve the eco system. The assessment of the ground water quality was carried out in the different area of Agra city for the evaluation of the current status of physico-chemical contaminants and their sources in groundwater. Groundwater samples were obtained from fifteen different sampling stations in Agra city. The results were compared with standards prescribed by CPCB and BIS. Different parameters were analyzed that are pH, alkalinity, turbidity, TDS, total hardness and chlorides. The sampling sites showed that the physicochemical parameters were within the water quality standards and the quality of water was found to be fit for drinking purposes.
