Abstract

The ground water samples have been collected from different localities of Jaipur district. The collected samples were analyzed for various physico-chemical parameters viz. total hardness, pH, Electrical conductivity, Alkalinity, Dissolved Oxygen, Chlorides, Phosphates, Sulphates, Fluorides, Cadmium (Cd) and Lead (Pb) by different analytical techniques. It has been found that the concentrations of maximum parameters are under the permissible limits. None of the water sample contains phosphate contents. The cadmium concentrations have been found in the samples collected from Shahpura, Chandwaji, NIMS University, Kukas, Gandhi Nagar, and Sitapura areas of Jaipur district. In these six samples Cadmium level was found above the desired limit (0.003 mg/l). Lead concentrations have been found above the desired limit (0.01 mg/l) in samples collected from NIMS University, Kukas, Malviya Nagar, Sitapura areas of Jaipur.
