Abstract


We report here the quality of water samples from bored tube wells at different sites along the Budhi Gandak belt of Kanti block from Akharaghat to Kanti in Muzaffarpur district of Bihar state during post-monsoon season of 2012 with respect to parameters such as pH, conductivity, TDS, DO, total hardness, alkalinity, sodium, potassium, calcium, magnesium and chloride as well as heavy metals such as Cu, Zn, Fe and As . TDS of some samples exceeded the maximum permissible limit of WHO. Significantly, iron was found much above the maximum permissible limit of WHO in almost all the samples, whereas arsenic contamination was also noted at many sites, which at some of these even much exceeded the maximum permissible limit of WHO. Arsenic contamination in the groundwater of this area is a serious concern for human health.
