Paper Title
A study on assessment of groundwater quality and its suitability for drinking in Vuyyuru, Krishna(dist.), Andhra Pradesh
  B Vijaya Lalitha,  K Sai Tejaswini

Assessment of groundwater quality is necessary as it controls it’s usability for drinking purpose. The study was carried out by the physico-chemical and biological analysis of groundwater to assess the suitability of groundwater for drinking. Seawater intrusion is the movement of seawater into freshwater aquifers due to natural processes or human activities. Seawater intrusion is a severe problem by decrease in the groundwater level compared to the seawater level. This draw-down also reduces the hydrostatic pressure. When this happens near an ocean coastal area, salt water from the ocean is pulled into the fresh . In Vuyyuru because of seawater intrusion most of the fertile lands are becoming wastelands and cultivation has been decreased. In the present study, groundwater samples were collected from ten sample stations in the Vuyyuru, Krishna delta region. Water samples are collected from bore wells of sample stations and are analyzed for concentrations. The concentrations of physical, chemical s parameters in groundwater samples were compared with the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) and World Health Organization (WHO), and observed that the water quality parameters were exceeding the permissible limits in some places of the study area. The water quality index is determined using weighted arithmetic index method. The conclusion of the analysis is that the groundwater in some places of study area is good for drinking and many areas have poor water quality. However the quality can be improved after undergoing the treatment processes
