Under Ground Water Quality of Ganga Canal in Meerut District Uttar Pradesh, India


The present study is conducted to asses the under ground water nearby the Ganga canal, Meerut, Uttar Pradesh for drinking and irrigation purpose. Water samples were analyzed for their chemical properties i.e. pH, total salt (electrical conductivity), Anions (Cl-, CO3-, HCO3-, SO4- and NO3- ) and Cations(Ca++ and Mg++, Na+,K+), TDS, water quality indices, toxic element and heavy content of water samples pH varied 7.28 to 8.09 and electrical conductivity 0.17 and 1.04 dSm-1, potassium, sodium 9.5 and 2.4 mgL-1, Ca++ and Mg++ content ranged from 5.8 to 28.6 meqL-1, Cl- content varied from 0.16 to 0.53 g L-1, nitrate ranged 0.10 to 4.47 mgL-1 , sulphate varied from 0.12 to 2.77 mgL-1. The carbonate and bicarbonate sample varied from 1.0 to 6.0 and 6.00 to 22.0 meqL-1. As sample varied 1.08 to 21.29 ppb. The TDS value 115.0 mgL-1. The Meerut district is safe for irrigation and drinking purpose on the basis of most parameters
