Abstract

Assessment of quality of drinking water is very crucial for public health. A study was conducted to evaluate the quality of groundwater in a village Mohanpur situated at the boarder of Samastipur town of North Bihar. Water samples were randomly collected from 20 tube wells situated near the pit latrines at the radius of 10- 15 feet. The samples were analyzed for physico-chemical parameters like pH, electrical conductivity, total hardness, total dissolved solids; chemical parameters like total alkalinity, calcium, magnesium, chloride, nitrate, sulphide, and microbiological parameter total coliform (MPN). In most of the water samples the values of one or more physicochemical parameters of drinking water were higher than the BIS permissible level. In pre-monsoon season 13 water samples and in post-monsoon season 15 water samples showed MPN above the recommended permissible level. Introduction of sewage and animal waste into the drinking water might be the reason for the contamination of water samples.
