Assessment of ground water pollution due to fluoride content and water quality in and around Tanda Taluka of Rampur district, Uttar Pradesh, India
Ground water samples of Tanda taluka of Rampur district have been collected either from the bore wells (from the part of municipal water supply) or from hand pumps (direct consumption) one analyzed for their physico- chemical properties. The results indicates that fluoride concentration is varies from 0.46-4.36 mg/L. Also in this Analysis the physico- chemical parameters such as pH, electrical conductivity, TH, TA, Na+, Cl-, TDS, SO4 2-, F-, K+, calcium and magnesium etc. were determine using standard procedures. Also in this paper due to increase permissible limits of fluoride in Tanda taluka a survey for dental and skeleton fluorosis is also done, which denotes mainly dental and Skelton fluorosis in the studied taluka. Thus an attempt was made to improve the ground water quality of Tanda taluka of district Rampur, U.P., India.
