Abstract
Fast increasing human population, urbanization and industrialization are responsible for degrading water quality and consequently public health is affected due to water pollution. Assessment of some water quality parameters like conductivity, total dissolved solid (TDS) and pH are useful and important parameters to measure the salinity and pollution assessment of water. In this research work, physicochemical parameters of ground water of five stations of Hapur District viz. Shiv Nagar, Shivpuri, Kothigate, SSV College and Delhi Road were analyzed. Conductivity or electrical conductivity and TDS are directly proportional to each other (TDS = k EC, at 298K) for water samples collected from different sources used for domestic and irrigation purposes in Hapur district. There is strong correlation between EC and TDS. Estimated TDS/EC ratio in water samples indicates water quality and is always influenced by salinity. Therefore, periodical monitoring and analysis of water quality parameters and treatment of water resources in all the area require immediate attention for proper planning, framing strategies, effective policy and better management of water resources to improve water quality for sustaining healthy ecosystems in the area.
