Abstract

People on globe are under tremendous risk due to undesired changes in the physical, chemical and biological characteristics of air, water and soil. Due to increased human population, industrialization, use of chemical fertilizers and man-made activities, water is getting highly polluted with different harmful contaminants. It is necessary that the quality of drinking water should be checked at regular time interval, because due to the use of contaminated drinking water, human population suffers from various kinds of water borne diseases. In the present study, physical analysis of water samples from four major districts (Gurdaspur, Bathinda, Ropar and Moga) of Punjab was done and effective results were obtained. The comprehensive value of pH in the four districts from the different sources of water fluctuated within the range between 6.89±0.01 to 8.31±0.14. The maximum pH was reported from Moga in canal water (8.31±0.14) and minimum from Ropar district in Ro water (6.89±0.01). The electrical conductivity (EC) of water samples from the different study areas ranged between 54.24±18.86 to 2338.8±367.02. The least value of conductivity was observed in RO water of Gurdaspur and maximum reported in motor water sample of Bathinda district (household). The values of TDS was ranged in between 37.72±11.55-1651.80±170.45.The salinity of different water sources from the four districts ranged in between 29.70±7.68 to 1138.12±174.54 and the peak salinity of water observed in motor water (household) of Bathinda and least in RO of Gurdaspur district.
