Abstract:

The study was conducted to understand the ground water quality by using different irrigation water suitability indices in Guntur channel command area for drinking and irrigation purpose. Total twenty five ground water samples were collected during post and pre-monsoon season. Physicochemical parameters like pH, electrical conductivity, calcium, magnesium, carbonates, bicarbonates, sodium, total dissolved solids, total suspended solids were analysed using standard procedures. The values obtained were compared with the standards of BIS and WHO. A comparison of groundwater quality parameters in relation to specified limits for drinking water shows that concentration of EC, bicarbonates, sodium, total dissolved solids exceeded the desirable limits in many samples. Water quality assessment revealed that Ananthavarapadu, Vatticherukuru, Parthipadu, Kondepadu, Pallapadu, Mutluru, Godavarru, Namburu, Garapadu, Etukuru, Suddapalli villages, water is not suitable for drinking and irrigation purposes.
