Abstract

Studies on Some Physico-Chemical and Microbiological Characteristic of Potable Water Used in Some Different Area of Ahmedabad in Gujarat

A physico chemical and microbiological study of the ground water of some different area of Ahmedabad of Gujarat state has been made. Physico chemical parameter such as colour, odour, taste, temperature, PH, electrical conductivity, TS, TDS, total hardness, total alkalinity, calcium, magnesium, iron, sodium, potassium, chloride, sulphate, nitrate, fluoride, and silica were determine. In microbiological study, Coli forms, E.Coli, sulphate reducing anaerobic bacteria, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Yeast and Mould were investigated. Samples were taken from different ten area of Ahmedabad viz. Chharodi(S-1), Naroda(S-2), Maninagar(S-3), Ranip(S-4), Shahibaug(S- 5), Vatva(S-6), Vasna(S-7), Navrangpura(S-8), Bopal(S-9) and Vastrapur(S-10) . Samples were taken four time in year in month of January, April, and July and august to check the seasonal effects.Here study reported is for samples taken in January-2005 and April 2005. For colour, iron, sulphate, nitrate, fluoride and silica, instrumental methods like Spectrophotometry were used. “Hach- odyssey spectrophotometer” which has facility to store calibration curves and which can display the value for that parameter directly was used
