Abstract

The present investigation deals with Hydrochemical analysis of ground water quality of five different site of Bodh gaya block and its adjoing area i.e. Bakraur (S1), Mahuain (S2), Silaunja (S3),Bataspur (S4) and Bara (S5). The groundwater parameters such as, pH, temrature, alkalinity, calcium, magnesium, phosphate, total hardness, dissolved oxygen, biochemical oxygen demand, sulphate, iron, chloride and Floride were estimated in the samples to evaluate their quality. The data of physico chemical parameters are compared with WHO (1992) and IS: 10500 standards for drinking water. Our result revealed that concentration of DO, BOD, Total hardness, Calcium, magnesium, sulphate, turbidity, alkalinity, phosphate, iron and chloride are within permissible limits and Iron, phosphate are negligible in comparison to permissible limits whereas the concentration of nitrate is higher at sampling areas S2,S3 and S5. The proper treatment necessary before the use for drinking purposes and irrigation purposes.
