Srivastava, P. . #96 Significance of Physico-Chemical and Bacteriological Parameters in Summation of Water Quality in KIET, Ghaziabad. J Pharm Chem 2022, 8.


Water quality is a vital concern for humanity as it is directly linked with human welfare. A parameter selection for determining water quality is totally based on the purpose of its use and the extent of required water quality and purity. With this knowledge, this paper deals with the study on analyzing drinking water parameters in a reputed educational institute situated in Muradnagar, i.e., KIET, Ghaziabad. Monthly changes in physical and chemical, and bacteriological parameters such as water temperature, turbidity, total dissolved solids, pH, dissolved oxygen, carbonate, bicarbonate, total alkalinity, hardness, calcium, magnesium, chloride,su, etc. were analyzed for a period of one year from July 2020 to June 2021. The sampling frequency was once a month. Various physicochemical parameters were selected for assessment (pH, temperature, color, odor, turbidity, total hardness, total dissolved solids, total suspended solids, chloride, fluorides, nitrates, lead, and arsenic). Moreover, the bacteriological study was recorded by finding entire coliform colonies. The results obtained were compared with WHO and EPA standards for drinking and recreational water. Except for drinking water of some floors of boys hostel that do not comply with chloride and pH standards, respectively, all other parameters were in the standard range. The present review paper depicts the importance of various parameters in reckoning water quality to check its suitability for drinking, industrial, or marine life, etc.
