Assessment of ground water quality for application in Kakinada coast

Studies on Characterization of twenty ground water samples Collected from various open wells around Kakinada city have been carried out The parameters considered for characterization include pH, EC, TDS, Total Hardness, Cl- , F-, No3 -, Ca+2, Mg+2, Na, K , Percent Sodium and SAR. Higher concentrations of Na, K, Ca, and Mg are due to intensive Agriculture and industrial activities while higher concentration of Calcium may be contributed to the excessive utilization of Nitrogenous fertilizers. The parametric studies also indicate the influence of sea water intrusion on the quality of ground water in various locations The results of the study further revealed the unsuitability of the water for domestic uses
