Abstract

The study was designed to predict the ground water qualities of different locations of central Agra city, Uttar Pradesh, India. Physico-chemical parameters were investigated pH, TDS (Total Dissolve Solids), TH (Total Hardness), levels of Ca++ (Calcium) and Mg++ (Magnesium), Two Carbonate, Na2CO3 and NaHCO3 (Sodium Carbonate and Sodium bi Carbonate), Six Heavy Metals (Cu, Zn, Fe, Mn, Cd, As) analyses by AAS (Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer), fluoride investigation by Spectrophotometer and removal of NOM (Natural Organic Matter) by Fenton’s Process.

This paper deals with evaluation of pH, TDS, TH, levels of Ca++ and Mg++, Na2CO3 and NaHCO3, Heavy Metals, fluoride value and NOM removal from ground water by Fenton’s Process. Correlation matrix shows significant relation between heavy metals and NOM. The high values of these parameters might have health complications and so they need attention. The above studies are helpful to understand the ground water quality and their subsequent fitness or unfitness of ground water for drinking and domestic purpose at various sites under taken. The obtained data was compared by standards.
