Analysis of Chloride, Sodium and Potassium in Groundwater Samples of Nanded City in Mahabharata, India

Sayyed Juned A. and Bhosle Arjun B.

Ground water quality study was carried out in the Nanded city area, Marathwada. The objective of this study is to identify the quality of ground water where ground water is used for domestic and agriculture purposes. Seventy groundwater samples were collected in the pre and post monsoon month of January 2010 from different bore wells samples and were analysed for Cl, Na, and K. This study reveals that the agriculture activities, geological formation and local environmental conditions control the groundwater quality. The groundwater in this area is mostly moderately hard. Groundwater suitability for domestic industrial and irrigation purposes were examined using WHO, Indian standards classification, which indicate that groundwater in a few sampling sites, were unsuitable for domestic purpose and irrigation.
