Assessment of Groundwater quality in Granite Mining Areas of Bijauli in Bundelkhand Region of India

Gayatri Singh, R S Khoiyangbam, Amit Pal

An assessment of water quality and heavy metal contents in groundwater samples collected from the granite mining areas of Bijauli was carried out; covering; pre-monsoon; monsoon and post-monsoon periods. The physico-chemical variables studied were pH; electrical conductivity; dissolve oxygen; turbidity; calcium hardness; magnesium hardness; alkalinity; nitrate; fluoride; total dissolve solids and chloride contents. The results of the study revealed that parameters such as pH (6.88.1) ; turbidity (1.4 2.4 NTU) ; fluoride (0.31 0.99 mg L-1) ; dissolve oxygen (5.2 7.7 mg L-1) ; and chlorides (36 376 mg L-1) contents were within the acceptable limits for drinking water. The electrical conductivity (4502750 S cm-1) ; total dissolve solids (4621860 mg L-1) ; calcium hardness (90 237 mg L-1) ; magnesium hardness (40.3 134.3 mg L-1) ; alkalinity (148 434 mg L-1) ; nitrate (15.2 89.0 mg L-1) contents were found to have exceeded the prescribed acceptable limits. The results obtained in heavy metal analyses; indicated that the levels of Fe and Zn were within the acceptable limits; whereas Al was below the detectable level. High concentrations of Cd (0.045 0.064 mg L-1) ; Pb (0.045 0.630 mg L-1) and Mn (0.250 0.613 mg L-1) ; exceeding the acceptable levels were recorded in the groundwater samples.
