Evaluation of Physico-Chemical Quality of Drinking Water in Bilaspur District of Chhattisgarh State
Abstract: Quality of water influences the health status of any populace; besides biological; analysis for physical and chemical properties including trace element contents are very important for public health studies. Ground water quality of Bilaspur district; with respect to fifteen physico-chemical parameters was examined for throughout the year (April; 2013 to March; 2014) to assess its suitability for drinking purposes. Eighty one samples of drinking water of different sources were collected from different area within district for proper analysis. Four samples from each block were collected. For all three source of drinking water (Hand-pump water; Tap water and Bore well water) fifteen Physico-chemical parameters were analyzed; considering all three season (summer; rainy and winter) and observed values were compared with standard values recommended by World Health Organization (WHO). Analysis of result showed that available water especially tap water is not suitable for public health.
