Suitability Assessment of Groundwater for Irrigation Purpose in Veppanthattai Block, Perambalur District, Tamil Nadu

Title variants
Languages of publication
Groundwater is a major water source for agricultural irrigation in Veppanthattai block. Forty-five groundwater samples were collected at various standard locations from the study area in the year of 2015 at pre-monsoon, post monsoon and monsoon seasons periodically. The concentrations of physicochemical parameters like pH, Electrical Conductivity (EC), total dissolved solid (TDS), Total Hardness (TH), Ca2+, Mg2+, Na+, K+, HCO3ˉ, SO42-, Clˉ, NO3ˉ and PO43- were analyzed. The results of the concentrations were interpreted and compared with different irrigation standards namely EC, Percent Sodium (%Na), Sodium Adsorption Ratio (SAR), Residual Sodium Carbonate (RSC), Permeability Index (PI), Kelly’s Ratio (KR), Ion Exchange as chloro-alkaline indices (CAI-I and CAI-II), Chloride classification and Magnesium ratio.
