Virendra Kumar Pushkar, Dr. Shobha Gupta
During present study was carried out to assess the status of the underground water in Mauganj blocks. The range of physicochemical parameters like pH (6.9-7.6), EC (2150-3550 mmhos), TDS (1240-1850 mg/l), Turbidity (6.4-20.6 NTU), Total Alkalinity (345-530 mg/l), Total hardness (580-860 mg/l), Chloride (310-530 mg/l), Calcium (80-165 mg/l), Magnesium 70.5-124 mg/l), Sodium (130-330 mg/l) and Potassium (8.6-34.5 mg/l) were found to be higher than the natural background level of groundwater. This indicates the groundwater pollution in selected water samples from 10 sampling sites from Feb. to May 2018 of Mauganj blocks. The results considered that the groundwater of the study area in general cannot be considered as good quality.
