The Water Quality Loss Due to Dust Pollution in South Katraj Region

G. N. Supe | Prof. S. M. Gawande

Abstract: Pure water is a basic need of every individual. It is composed of hydrogen and oxygen in a specific proportion. The variations in composition of hydrogen and oxygen along with additional unwanted material create water pollution. The water quality losses directly impact the color, taste, and odor of water. The contamination of water is the loss of water quality index. Water is termed as a universal solvent as it can dissolve any naturally occurring substance. The solubility power of water plays an important role in selected study area but sometime poses a major threat due to corrosion reaction with equipments. Corrosion reactions results in the slow dissolution of material of equipments by water. The presence of impurities in water affects the solubility and corrosive nature of water. The monitoring of sources of surface and ground water helps to minimize such impurities to avoid water contamination. Ground water is source of fresh water which is being polluted by activities taking place on ground surface since last few years. The loss of water quality in South Katraj Area of Pune city is due to deposition of unwanted dust particles into natural and artificial sources of water. The mass concentration of such dust deposition defines the percentage loss of water quality. The experimental observations expose the excessive loss of water quality which results from dust emission due to stone crushing industry. Local atmosphere is under the influence of such huge dustfall which is disturbing air, water and soil of surrounding area.
