PHYSIOCHEMICAL ANALYSIS OF HEAVY METALS IN SOIL AND GROUND WATER OF INDUSTRIAL AREA PARTAPUR, MEERUT (U.P)
Author(s): Arvind Kumar, Deepak Rathi and Rekha Dixit
In the present study our aim is to quantify the presence of heavy metals concentration with physicochemical analysis in Soil and Ground water in Pratapur Industrial Area Meerut (UP). The effect of pollution caused by industrial waste and around adjoining areas. The water and soil samples were collected from the five villages around industrial area during the study period from March 2014 to May 2014 (Pre-monsoon). The water was moderately alkaline with high pH. The Ground water and soil quality analyzed for selected heavy metals like Zn, Cu, Pb and Cd, by Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer. The results were compared with standard values of drinking water prescribed by BIS and WHO. The statistical parameters like mean systematically calculated for physicochemical parameters.
