Abstract:

In present study, heavy metal concentrations of cadmium (Cd), cobalt (Co), chromium (Cr), nickel (Ni), lead (Pb) and copper (Cu) in soil, water and fodder samples collected from industrial (Gandhidham- area 1) and non-industrial (Bhachau- area 2) areas of Kutch district of Gujarat were determined with objectives to explore presence of heavy metals and correlationship between heavy metal concentrations in environmental components. Comparing the inter-area values, the average level of Co in non-industrial area and Cu in industrial area were found significantly higher for soil samples; levels of Cd, Ni and Pb collected from non-industrial area were significantly higher as compared to industrial area for water samples while average values of Cd in industrial area were significantly higher than non-industrial area and average values of Co in non-industrial area were significantly higher than industrial area for fodder samples. Based on available Maximum Permissible Limit (MPL), none of the soil sample in industrial and non-industrial areas was found to contain heavy metals (Cd, Cr, Pb and Cu) above MPLs.
