Abstract

Water quality analysis in different locations of Sattur Town, Viruthunagar District, Tamil Nadu, India was carried out. Physico-chemical parameters of the water samples such as appearance (clear), colour (colourless), Odour (agreeable), Turbidity (1 to 2NTU), TDS (1337 to 11830 mg/l), EC (1910 to 16900 µmhos/cm), pH (7.4 to 8.1), Total Alkalinity (280 to 880 mg/l), Calcium (64 to 490 mg/l), Magnesium (38 to 300mg/l), Nitrate (3 to 40 mg/l), Chloride (400 to 5100 mg/l), Fluoride (0.4 to 1.0 mg/l), Sulphate (17 to 85 mg/l), Dissolved O2 (9.54 TO 15.47 mg/l), Dissolved CO2(1.68 to 3.78 ppm), Salinity (0.73 to 1.93 ppt) were observed in present investigation. Contamination of water resources is occurring due to poor water resources, sanitation, animal manure, improper disposal of solid waste and domestic sewage. All the results are agreeable with that of earlier findings.
