Ground water samples collected from four villages of Radhapuram Taluk have been analysed from December 2010 to April 2011 for some water quality parameters such as fluoride, pH,EC, total hardness, total alkalinity, Chlorides and salinity. Seasonally lowest and highest values of all these parameters are recorded during summer and rainy season respectively in all the four villages. Majority of the values of the water quality parameters are found above the limit prescribed by ICMR. Copyright © EM International. Source

Dry fruit of tamarind and its seeds has been used as an adsorbent for defluoridation of drinking water which is a simple and economic method. The botanical name of tamarind is Tamarindus indica. It has the highest capacity of removing fluoride from drinking water. © EM International. Source

Fluoride concentration in ground water and ground water quality parameters in ground water samples from three villages of Tirunelveli District were assessed. It is found that fluoride concentration in ground water is heterogeneously distributed and more than 1 ppm, which is much above the permissible limits prescribed by ICMR. Fluoride content upto 1 ppm is considered as "safe" and fluoride beyond that limit leads to dental and skeletal fluorosis . Copyright © EM International. Source

The present work deals with the quality of water parameters such as pH, electrical conductivity, total hardness, calcium, magnesium, total alkalinity, chloride, salinity andfluoride in Kodumudiaru dam water. These parameters are recorded by means of collecting twenty samples of water from the dam and near by ponds connected through canal. Experimental analysis shows that concentration of fluoride in surface water is less than 1 ppm, which is the permissible limit. The other parameters are also present within the limit.

This paper deals with a comparative study of the adsorption of fluoride by using paddy husk charcoal and coconut shell charcoal. The adsorption depends upon the percentage of alkali and amount of adsorbent used in this process. © EM International Printed in India. All rights reserved. Source
