Abstract

All over the world, polluted water is the dominant cause for the water born diseases. These diseases lead to the continuity in sickness and mortality all around the world. So it is compulsory that the water we are drinking should be safe from the biological and chemical pollution. So we made a standard level test to calculate the contamination of the water. In which the ground water samples have been collected from the different places of the city Rampur district area of Uttar Pradesh. In the test, we analyzed the pH, total alkalinity, chloride, total dissolved solids, electrical conductivity, sodium, potassium, calcium, magnesium, dissolved oxygen, BOD, COD, and total hardness. The pH value of the studied area ranges between 7.9 to 7.51 indicating that the ground water is not alkaline. The total alkalinity is varied in the range from 122 to 282 mg/l which is well within the limit prescribed by BIS. The TDS value found from 292 to 588 mg/l. The range of hardness of water found from 26 to 42 ppm which was found to be within the desired limit according to BIS.
