Use of biosanitizer for removal of carbonates and bicarbonates


The physico-chemical anlaysis of groundwater at Kalmeshwar, Nagpur District in India was carried out. The results based on electrical conductivity, total dissolved solids (TDS), chloride and alkalinity revealed that nearly all the water samples were found to be highly polluted. A treatment process comprising the usage of biosanitizer was applied in restoring the polluted groundwater into potable one. By this approach, a reduction of bicarbonate and carbonate content in the ground water was achieved by 90% and 45 % respectively. Our investigation can be helpful for municipal administrators and in water resource management.
