|Title:||A study on quality of drinking water in Kamrup district Assam India and defluoridation of water using bioadsorbents|
|Guide(s):||Sarma, H P|
|Abstract:||Water, water, everywhere, Nor any drop to drink Samuel Taylor Coleridge Water is a vital resource for the human society. Rapidly shrinking surface water resources due to over-exploitation and resulted contamination with several chemical and biological agents all over the globe has shifted tremendous pressure on the groundwater resources. Access to safe drinking water is essential to health, a basic human right and a component of effective policy for health protection. Ground water is assumed to be of higher quality unlike surface water sources as it remains unexposed but with the increase in domestic sewage and agricultural and other industrial wastes the natural sources are getting contaminated every now and then. The chronic impact of these chemical contaminants of drinking water is dreadful. Evaluation of water quality is a meaningful topic today. Quality water is vital to the social health and economic well-being of the prairies and its people. Although we as humans recognize this fact, we disregard it by polluting our rivers, lakes and oceans. Thus every effort should be made to achieve drinking water quality as safe as practicable. The present study has been carried out on quotQUALITY OF DRINKING WATER IN KAMRUP DISTRICT, ASSAM, INDIA AND DEFLUORIDATION OF WATER USING BIOADSORBENTSquot. The thesis has been divided into six chapters. Chapter 1: The first chapter begins with an introduction to the subject of investigation, a brief definition, various aspects of water contamination, a review on existing literature on environmental water quality, significance of the study and most importantly the aims and objectives of the study. The following objectives have been formulated for the present study To monitor the physical, chemical and biological quality of drinking water in the study area. To study the potability of water. To correlate the principal contaminants with the common aliments in the district. To generate a database for the drinking water quality in the study area. Identification of potential pollution...|
