ABSTRACT:
A study has been undertaken to estimate the concentration of heavy metals like As, Cd, Cr and Pb and to evaluate the edaphic character of agricultural soil near a coal fired thermal power station. Soil samples were collected from the agro fields in the vicinity of Durgapur Thermal Power Station (under DVC, West Bengal) and simultaneously for control study soil samples were also collected from Burdwan University seeds multiplication farm. The analysis revealed that the concentration of Cd, Cr, and Pb were much higher in the agro fields near the Durgapur Thermal Power Station than the control sites but As level is much higher at the control site in comparison to the Durgapur Thermal Power Station site. The physical properties like the bulk density and particle density are slightly lower at the Durgapur Thermal Power Station site whereas the porosity and moisture content are slightly higher at the Durgapur Thermal Power Station site in comparison to the control site.
