Drinking Water, Ground Water, Physico-Chemical Parameters.



A systematic study has been carried out to explore the Physico-chemical characteristics of groundwater in six south India areas. Water sample from open wells in south india area district were collected and analyzed for PH, electrical conductivity, dissolved oxygen, total hardness, total alkalinity. Comparative studies of samples in six different district were conducted, it shows Ernakulum water have low hardness comparatively than Tamilnadu districts water. It was also analyzed that electrical conductivity, total dissolved solids, PH, alkalinity. From this, we concluded the Ernakulum water is best than the other districts of Tamilnadu.
