Abstract

The physico-chem. and microbiol. parameters of water samples from some selected areas of 15 districts in Karnataka were investigated. A total of 47 water samples were collected over a period of five months. Most of the physico-chem. parameters are within the permissible limits of BIS and WHO stds. for drinking water. However, some samples show pH lower than the normal limit. The fluoride content in Hassan district was very high. One of the samples from Chitradurga contained very high of Nitrite content than the desirable limit. Water samples were subjected to microbiol. anal. also. Some samples were found to be highly contaminated with conforms while some other samples were suitable for human consumption. Therefore, it was concluded that a few water samples were unsuitable for drinking purpose. [on SciFinder(R)]
