Determination of Physico-chemical Nature and Water Quality Index of Groundwater in Erode District (Perundurai)

This paper presents the study on the physico-chemical parameters of Groundwater samples collected at nine stations at the radius of 10 km asĀ  center as SIPCOT industries Perundurai in Erode district. The quality of Ground Water samples are compared to the water quality index for the drinking purpose. The water quality index is calculated by the help of parameter sample results like Turbidity, Electrical Conductivity, Total dissolved solids, Total Alkalinity, Sodium, Iron, Calcium, pH, Total Hardness, Magnesium, Manganese, Nitrate, Chloride, Fluoride, Sulphate, Ammonia, Phosphate through formulae. Finally, the comparison of quality of Groundwater on basis of Water quality index done on collected sample stations. The calculated water quality index results shows that 22.22% falls in the Excellent to Good water category. On the other hand 44.44% falls in the poor to very poor water category indicating the water is not suitable for drinking and need further treatment.
