Abstract

Groundwater is an essential natural resource for human drinking, washing, bathing etc and also used for irrigation purposes.The recent scientific development and improper agricultural management should contaminate the ground water resources. The present experimental work to assess the ground water quality characteristics at various places of Ariyalur block in Ariyalur district, Tamil Nadu, India. The ground Water samples were collected from bore wells and assessed different water quality characteristics of pH, Turbidity, Electrical conductivity(EC), Total dissolved solids(TDS), Total hardness(TH), Calcium(Ca2+), Magnesium(Mg2+), Sodium(Na+), Potassium(K+), Iron(Fe), Nitrate(NO3 -), Chloride(Cl-), Fluoride(F), Sulphate (SO4 2-) and Total Alkalinity(TA). All the quality characteristics compared with WHO and Indian standards. The test results prove that the water has higher values of Hardness, Total dissolved solids and Alkalinity in many samples, which conclude that these water samples are not suitable for drinking purposes
