Abstract :

Clean drinking water is essential for the survival. Unfortunately the quality of water has deteriorated because of various type of pollution. The present study is carried out for evaluating drinking water quality from Ahmedabad city by standard methods using GPCB standards from 15 areas in Monsoon 2011. The study indicates that total hardness was within highest desirable limits. The data indicates all water samples were either hard water or very hard water according to total hardness. Calcium hardness was within highest desirable limit and maximum permissible limits. Magnesium hardness was even crossing maximum permissible limits. The study also indicates that chlorinity was within highest desirable limits or maximum permissible limits. Salinity was within highest desirable limit and maximum permissible limits. EC and TDS were within highest desirable limits and even crossing maximum permissible limits. The data indicates drinking water may be used after proper treatment before distribution or use.
