A Study on Water Quality of NIT Rourkela

Frimal, Shikhar (2009) A Study on Water Quality of NIT Rourkela. BTech thesis.



The present study the quality of drinking water supplied to the hostels, canteens and campus of National Institute of Technology, Rourkela, through tap, which includes tests for temperature, pH value, total solids, total suspended solids, hardness, acidity, alkalinity, chloride, chlorine, jar test, BOD and DO. Rourkela is one of the most important industrial complexes in the state of Orissa which has Integrated Rourkela Steel Plant, a number of sponge iron industries, cement manufacturing unit, chemicals, explosives, ceramics and distillery units and large number of small and medium industries. A water quality standard is a rule or law comprised of the uses to be made of a water body or segment and the water quality criteria necessary to protect that uses. The average temperature, concentration of pH, turbidity, TDS (Total Dissolved Solids), TSS (Total Suspended Solids), DO (Dissolved Oxygen), BOD (Biochemical Oxygen Demand), total hardness, alkalinity and chloride are found to be 27.38 ⁰C, 7.37, 2.438 NTU, 156.8 mg/l, 2.653 mg/l, 42.156 mg/l, 3.6 mg/l, 8.65 mg/l, 102.3mg/l and 21.2 mg/l respectively. The results obtained from the water quality criteria parameter are within the drinking water standard. (IS: 10500).
