Comparative Study of Heavy Metals in Soil and Ground Water of Various Areas
Varsha Rani Jain | Dr. Aaparna Gandhe
Abstract: The heavy metal present in soil and ground water enters into food chain and causes serious health issues. Heavy metals are not biodegradable thus it causes serious environmental problem. The present study was carried out with samples of soil and ground water from some commercial and industrial areas of Indore (Polo ground, Indian oil corporation AB road, Holkar Science College, Poultry form sanwer road, Cement Roofing industry AB road Manglia Indore, Greater Vaishali, Pond in front of Shanchi milk industry) and then the results of both water and soil ware compared. To determine the concentration of heavy metal in soil and water AAS (Atomic Absorption spectroscopy) is used. Before determine the concentration of some heavy metal we first analyzed some physicochemical properties and finally the study concluded that pretreatment process for reducing the amount of heavy metal is mandatory before the soil can be used as soil conditioner or fertilizer in the soil.
