Abstract

Drinking water is one of the prime necessities of life on the earth. Health of human beings are largely depends on the quality of drinking water used by them. Untreated or sometimes partially treated drinking water is often contaminated by hazardous chemicals, bacteria, phytoplankton, parasites etc. A large number of people especially rural and poor ones consume contaminated drinking water which is largely responsible for the ailments in them. Phytoplankton is one of the major causes of contaminations of drinking water quality. In the present investigation, an attempt has been made to evaluate the quality of drinking water by analyzing the status of phytoplankton in different drinking water sources of Katihar district. Phytoplankton density ranged from 00 to 07 OL-1 in tube wells water, 165 to 457 OL-1 in dug wells water, 00 to 09 OL-1 in railway supply water, 70 to 329 OL-1 in municipal supply water and 124 to 1259 OL-1 in river Ganga water. Total phytoplankton density was recorded maximum 1259 OL-1 in river Ganga water at Site-IV and minimum 00 OL-1 in tube wells and railway supply water at all the sites except tube well water at Site-II. Phytoplankton might be one of the major causes of drinking water problems and waterborne diseases in Katihar district.
