Abstract

The present work examines fluoride contamination of groundwater in different parts of Bargarh and Bolangir districts. The blocks worst affected by this problem include Barpali, Bijepur and Gaisilet blocks in the southern part of Bargarh district, and Agalpur, Belpada and Deogaon blocks in the northern part of Bolangir district. These blocks constitute a broadly NE-SW trending belt of fluoride contamination. Groundwater in the area occurs in both shallow and deep aquifers. Shallow aquifers are constituted by weathered formations where groundwater occurs under water table condition. Deep aquifers are constituted by fractured zones of the underlying bedrocks where groundwater occurs under semi-confined to confined condition. In deep aquifers, the fluoride concentration is up to 6.9 mg/L. Since the inhabitants of the region depend on the fluoride-contaminated groundwater for domestic needs, fluorosis is rampant in several parts of these districts. The study explores geogenic causes of fluoride contamination in the area.
