Abstract

Phagwara city is a part of the great Indo-Gangetic plains. It receives less than 686mm of rainfall annually. The low rainfall forces the need for other economical sources of drinking water. While the majority of irrigation water demand is met by canals drawn from rivers Sutlej and Beas, most drinking water is drawn from the ground by an arsenal of tube-wells. The high dependence of the populace on ground water shows the need for proper check on the ground water quality. The following texts contain a detailed report aimed at studying the ground water quality of Phagwara City and, thus, its subsequent mapping. Various samples were collected from selected regions of Phagwara City and tests for their chemical and physical qualities, in an attempt to find any alarming abnormalities. All testes and survey were conducted and compared against Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS), drinking water specifications as per IS 10500:2012. Test for Chlorides, Hardness, Dissolved Oxygen, Alkalinity, Acidic content, Conductivity and pH were conducted on each sample in clean laboratory conditions. No control specimens were taken and as such all results were compared with the specifications of IS 10500:2012. All results were satisfactory. All ideologies and results are discussed hereafter.
