Contamination and Pollution of Ground Water in Pakur District of Jharkhand

Dumraj Saha [2]

Abstract: The chemical pollution of water causes changes in acidity, alkalinity or pH and dissolved oxygen. It may be caused either by organic pollutants or inorganic pollutants or by both. The organic pollutants can be biodegradable or non-biodegradable. Biodegradable organic pollutants include proteins from domestic sewage. Non-biodegradable organic pollutants are those which persist in the aquatic system for a long time. Bacterial pollution in water is caused by the excretory products of man, animals and birds. The main pollutants belong to coliform group and certain subgroups, facial streptococci and miscellaneous organisms. Biological pollution is also brought about by bacteria, viruses, algae, diatoms like protozoa, rotifers, crustaceans and plants toxins. Physiological pollution of water is caused by several chemical agents such as chlorine, sulphur dioxide, hydrogen sulphide, ketones, phenols, amines, mercaptans and hydroxy benzene.
