Abstract

Water plays an important role in domestic and industrial usage. The quality of drinking water is a powerful environmental determinant of health. Assessment of water quality of drinking water supplies has always been paramount in the field of environmental quality management. Assurance of drinking water safety is a foundation for the prevention and control of water borne diseases. The suitability of drinking water has many requisite potable conditions. Groundwater quality of Srikakulam has a special significance and needs greater attention of all concerned since it is the only major source for domestic consumption. The paper presents rural groundwater quality assessment of Uddanam region, Srikakulam, Andhra Pradesh, India and analyzed for their physicochemical characteristics. The results of this analysis were compared with the water quality standards of WHO and BIS. The water samples have been collected from 10 bore wells, 38 dugwells and 2 surface sources in Uddanam region Srikakulam. In this analysis the various physicochemical parameters such as pH, Total Dissolved Solids, Total Hardness, Ca, Mg, Na, NO3, K,  Cl, SO4, HCO3 and SiOBy Using standard procedure.
