Abstract:

Groundwater survey is an important process for determining its suitability for various uses in daily human life by measurement of its physical and chemical characteristics. Present survey is done to assess and categorize the quality of groundwater of Pundri block of Kaithal district by focusing on electrical conductivity (EC), pH, cationic and anionic composition of groundwater. According to AICRP classification, among the 98 samples collected from Pundri block, maximum samples were in good category (60.20%) followed by alkali (33.68%) and saline (6.12%). All water samples in the saline group were in marginally saline category. Alkali samples were divided equally in marginally alkali, alkali and highly alkali category. Electrical conductivity of all the water samples ranged between 0.54 to 3.04 dSm-1 with mean value of 2.96 dSm-1. Sodium adsorption ratio in the block ranged from 4.03-11.78 (mmol L-1)1/2 with a mean value of 7.26 (mmol-1)1/2. Observations of residual sodium carbonate were recorded in the range of nil-6.90 me l-1 with the mean value of 1.49 me L-1.
