Hydrochemical Characteristics and Groundwater Quality Assessment in Shendra Area, Aurangabad District, Maharashtra, India


Hydrochemical characteristics and groundwater quality assessment study was carried out in and around Shendra area of Aurangabad, Maharashtra, India. Twenty five groundwater samples collected randomly to investigate physicochemical parameter such as pH, Electrical Conductivity (EC), Total Dissolve Solids (TDS),Calcium (Ca2+), Magnesium(Mg2+),Total Hardness (TH), Sodium (Na+), Potassium (K+), Bicarbonate alkalinity (HCO3−),Sulphate (SO4−) and Chloride (Cl−) in order to understand the different geochemical processes. The chemical characteristics were determined as per the standard methods for examination of water and wastewater (APHA, 2002), Trivedi and Goel (1984), and all results are compared with standard limit recommended by the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS,1991), and World Health Organization (WHO,1993). Comparison of geochemical data indicates the majority groundwater samples are within the limit prescribed by Bureau of Indian Standards and World Health Organization.
