Water quality analysis of water bodies of Kantajhar

Shrivastava, S (2014) Water quality analysis of water bodies of Kantajhar
BTech thesis.



In this work, samples of water were collected from three different tube-wells at two different times of the year. The first set of samples was collected in the month of September, 2013 & the second set was collected in April, 2014. Over the due course of time various parameters regarding the water quality were analysed & the Indian Standards: 10500 (Drinking water specifications) was referred to in order to check the acceptability of water. The parameters which were analysed are as follows : • Total Dissolved Solids • Total Suspended Solids • Determination of pH • Determination of chloride content • Conductivity • Determination of sulphate content • Turbidity • Iron content • Manganese content Most of the parameters were not found to be in the desirable range for drinking water & hence, appropriate measures were suggested to improve the quality of water.
