Physico-chemical parameter analysis of water in Musiri Taluk, Tamil Nadu, India
Languages of publication
An analysis of the physico-chemical parameters of ground and surface water of Musiri Taluk (Tamil Nadu, India) were carried out to study the quality of water and suitability for domestic purpose. Cauvery water, well water and bore wells are the water resources of the study area. The parameters included pH, EC, TDS, Turbidity, Total hardness and content of Fluoride, Sulphate and Chloride were also assessed and compared with the standard values prescribed by BIS. The present investigation revealed that the quality of water of Cauvery water is suitable for drinking purposes, but the well water and bore well water samples are unfit for drinking and utility purpose.
