Assessment of Groundwater Quality for Irrigation on the Bank of Noyyal River at Tiruppur, Tamil Nadu, India

Full Text PDF


Tiruppur is a textile city located on the banks of Noyyal River a tributary of the River Cauvery. Twenty groundwater samples were collected in identical locations from bore wells. The concentrations of physicochemical parameters of pH, Electrical Conductivity (EC), Total Hardness (TH), Ca, Mg, Na, K, HCO3, SO4, Cl and NO3 were analyzed. The results of the concentrations were interpreted and measured with different irrigation indexes like Percent Sodium (%Na), Sodium Adsorption Ratio (SAR), Residual Sodium Carbonate (RSC), Permeability Index (PI), Kelly’s Ratio (KR), CAI-1 and CAI-2 were analyzed.
