Analysis of water quality parameters of groundwater near Ambattur industrial area, Tamil Nadu, India


This paper presents groundwater quality of Ambattur industrial area in Chennai City. Ten different locations were selected for the study and compared. The parameters studied were pH, total alkalinity, total hardness, turbidity, chloride, sulphate, fluoride, total dissolved solids and conductivity. From overall analysis, it was observed that there was a slight fluctuation in the physico-chemical parameters among the water samples studied. Comparison of the physico-chemical parameters of the water sample with WHO and ICMR limits showed that the groundwater is highly contaminated and account for health hazards for human use.
