Abstract


Chemical Characteristic of the ground water quality at Chinnandankovil in Karur City, Tamil Nadu, India was carried out during September to November 2008. Two water samples from dye effluent industry and Eight Bore well water samples representing study area were collected and almost of all the samples values were within the permissible limit of World Health Organization (WHO) and Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) prescribed for drinking water standards pH 7.72 to 9.2, total dissolved solids (TDS) – 310 to 6850 mg/L , Electrical conductivity (EC) – 361 to 9800 micro mho/cm, phenolphthalein alkalinity (PA) range 20 to 130 mg/L, Totalalkalinity (TA) 127 to 730 mg/L, Total hardness (TH) 113 to 934 mg/L, chloride 37 to 3375 mg/L, Ca – 27 to 192 mg/L, Mg 11 - 143 mg/L, Na 336 to 846 mg/L, K 18.4 to 30.1 mg /L, Fe 0.11 to 2.28 mg/L, free ammonia 0.47 – 0.57 mg/L, Nitrite 0.01 – 0.54 mg /L, Nitrate 1 – 14 mg /L, Sulphate 10- 247 mg /L, Fluoride 0.0 - 2.2 mg/L, Phosphate 0.02 to 0.28 mg /L, Tidy’s test (as O mg/L) 0.4 – 78 mg /L, dissolved oxygen (DO) – 2.8 to 4.1 mg/L, biological oxygen demand (BOD) 81 to 234 mg/L, chemical oxygen demand (COD) 216 to 700 mg/L. However further it will need proper monitoring of the ground water quality in the study area.
