Author(s): Dr. Ashu Mishra
Abstract: The present study involves physico-chemical analysis of Benisagar dam, Satna were investigated for one year from June 2015 to May 2016. Water samples from this site were analyzed for Odour, pH, TDS, Hardness, Chloride, Alkalinity, Fluoride, Sulphate, Iron, Chlorine, Carbonate and Bicarbonate. The result reveal that the range of variation in different parameters was pH 6.8 to 8.5, TDS 184 to 362 mg/l hardness 132 to 261 mg/l, alkalinity 42 to 57 ppm, chloride 9 to 20 mg/l, calcium 36.7 to 52.6 mg/l, fluoride 0.223 to 0.262 mg/l, sulphate 4.2 to 8.3 mg/l, Iron 0.243 to 0.269 mg/ml, Bicarbonate 51.23 to 58.57 mg/l, Chlorine and Carbonate were nil during different months. All the physico-chemical parameters of Benisagar Dam water are within the highest desirable limit or maximum permissible limit set by WHO.
