Abstract:

The present study was carried out to assess the level of Lead produced by textile industries in Barnala district, Punjab (INDIA) and their harmful effects on human lives. Samples were collected from three different sites A, B and C. For each site, samples were taken from five different sources such as drain water, Surface water, Tap water, Ground water and canal. Lead can be determined by flame Atomic Absorption Spectrometer Method. Maximum value of Lead was found in site C. Lead has many harmful effects on health of children and aldults. For example Young children are particularly vulnerable to the toxic effects of lead and suffer profound and permanent adverse health effects, Particularly affecting the development of the brain and nervous System. Lead also causes long-term harm in adults, including increased risk of high blood pressure and Kidney damage. Exposure of Pregnant women to high levels of lead can cause miscarriage, Stillbirth, premature birth and low birth weight, as well as minor malformations.


Keywords: Lead, textile industry, Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy (AAS), water, Human lives.
