ABSTRACT:
Groundwater is one of the most useful water sources. Contamination of such water source is a big problem creating health hazards. In this present study we have collected groundwater samples from different places of Rajkot district of India. These samples were analyzed for the various physicochemical parameters like pH, conductivity, total dissolved solid, dissolved oxygen, total alkalinity, calcium and magnesium, sodium, potassium, chloride ion and biochemical oxygen demand. The analysis of the water quality parameters of groundwater from Rajkot district shows that the pH, Conductivity, Total Dissolved solids, Dissolve oxygen, Biochemical oxygen demand, Sodium, Magnesium, Potassium and Sulphate are well within the permissible limits. The Total Hardness and Calcium hardness of Station-3, Station-4 and Station-5. These samples need treatments to minimize the contamination. The mineral water is found to be safest for drinking.
