Water Quality Assessment of Physicochemical Parameters & Heavy Metals Contamination in Surface Water of Jonk River, Kasdol Area, Baloda Bazar, Chhattisgarh
Abstract: Present research work emphasizes the integrated approaches of Physicochemical parameters and heavy metals contamination indices coupled with multivariate statistical analysis to evaluate the range of contamination and health risk from surface water of Jonk river, near Kasdol are of Bolada Bazar District, Longitude21.6569N, 82.1592E. In this regards, three sample sites are chosen i. e. , site-1 Rajandevri, site-2 Golajhar, & site-3 Chandan, and surface water samples of Jonk river were collected and tasted during monsoon, winter and summer seasons. Parameters of river water were analyzed like PH, Electrical conductance, total dissolved solids (TDS), hardness, Biochemical Oxygen Demands (BOD5), chemical Oxygen Demand (COD) etc. . The heavy metals Viz. , Pb, Cd, Zn, Fe, Mn, Cu, Al, Hg, Ni were analyzed  through ICP-OES, typical double beam AAS and proposed to compare with the BIS standards for drinking appropriateness. Heavy metal contamination assessment has been proposed to performed by using Heavy metal Pollution Index (HPI), Hazard Index (HI), Heavy Metal Evaluation Index (HEI) and degree of contamination (Cd) . After getting all the indices the mean is compared with the range and undesirable effect above the acceptable limit is found out.
