Assessment of Ground Water Quality in Various Parts of Thanjavur District, Tamil Nadu (India)

Full Text PDF


The present study is assess the quality of ground water from Thanjavur district, and check its fitness for drinking eight samples of ground water were collected from Thanjavur district. The pH was estimated by pH meter, calcium, magnesium, chloride were analyzed by titration method sulphade, iron, nitrate, nitrite, chromium were estimated by spectrometric method, total dissolved solids of the water samples was determined by gravimetrically, colour of the water samples was determined by platinum-cobalt method ,taste of the water samples can determine by taste rating method, turbidity of the water samples was determine by Nephelometric method etc., are determine for some parts of Thanjavur district water samples compared with standard limits recommended by BIS. Comparative study of groundwater for this region can be used for the quality of water is more suitable for drinking purpose.
