Assessment of Physico-Chemical Characteristics of Drinking Water Sources in Winter at Manikpur, Chitrakoot (UP)
Abstract: Manikpur is a subdivision of Chitrakoot District. There is no proper sever system in the town and effluents in Winter are allowed to flow over the roads and streets, as the result dangering the ground water quality. To determine the extent of ground water pollution assessment of physico-chemical characteristics of drinking water sources was done during winter. Eight sites named as Site-I-Patel Nagar, Site-II-Jawahar Nagar, Site-III- Shastri Nagar, Site-IV-Subhash Nagar, Site-V-Gandhi Nagar, Site-VI- Arya Nagar, Site-VII- Mahaveer Nagar & Site-VIII- Shiv Nagar were chosen for the purpose. The Parameters which were determined are Colour, Taste, Odour, Temperature, pH, Conductivity, Turbidity and contents Total solids, Suspended solids, Settable solids, DO, BOD, COD, TKN, BHC. The water Samples were also analyzed for the determination of contents like Calcium, Magnesium, Chloride, Sulphate, Carbonate, Nitrate, Sodium, Potassium and free CO2. The level of those parameters and contents were evaluated ; exceeded all the eight sites on comparing with desirable limits as prescribed by WHO and results were lowest at Site-7- Mahaveer Nagar and highest at Site-1- Patel Nagar in the Winter.
