Abstract:

An attempt had made to understand the ground water quality and its suitability for drinking and other uses by using water quality index (WQI) in river basin area in Jahazpur tehsil, Bhilwara district (Rajasthan, India). It is a technique of rating water quality. A comprehensive assessment of water quality parameters in ground water samples was carried out which were collected from 40 different locations of study area from dug wells, tube wells, hand pumps and PHED supply in 2014. For calculating water quality index nine parameters had selected such as pH, TDS, TH, EC, Cl-, F-, NO3-, HCO3- and DO. The average value of water quality for samples was found 22.94. 72.50% samples water was found in excellent category and 27.50% water samples in good WQI. The ground water of study area found alkaline, fresh to brackish type, brackish-salty to saline type and very hard category, 37.50% sample exceeded fluoride and nitrate concentration, Hardness is exceeded in most of the samples. WQI indicates that ground water from most of the samples is suitable for drinking and domestic purposes but need proper removal of excess TH, TDS, Cl-, F-, NO3- and HCO3-. Correlation coefficient values revealed that some parameter pairs have very strong and strong positive correlation but not have very strong and strong negative correlation.
