Estimation of Fluoride Concentration Level in Coimbatore (TN)
Abstract: Introduction: The aim and objective of this study is to evaluate the fluoride concentration of drinking water that is available in Coimbatore. Material and Method: The fluoride concentration of drinking water collected from Pollachi is analysed. The F ion selective electrode method was used to measure the F concentration in the samples. The measurements were obtained for every sample to ensure reproducibility and appropriate statistical analyses were employed. Results: The fluoride content is compared with EPA and WHO guidelines of drinking water. Conclusion: Fluoride in water is usually of geologic origin. Waters with high levels of halide content square measure principally found at the foot of high mountains and in areas wherever the ocean has created geologic deposits. Intake of excess halide, most ordinarily in drinking-water, will cause pathology that affects the teeth. The management of drinking-water quality is thus crucial in preventing pathology.
