Abstract


A comprehensive picture of quality of water of 24 different location of talukaMirwah and Kotdiji of district Khairpur Mir’s of Sindh Pakistan is presented in this paper. Samples from hand pumps were collected and investigated for both physical and chemical parameters pH, EC, TDS, hardness, alkalinity, Chlorine, sulfate, nitrate, nitrite Na, Ca, K, Mg, Fe, Cu, Cd, and Zn, for quality investigation. These parameters limits were compared with the permissible limits recommended by W.H.O some parameters were obtained within the allowable levels but most have objectionable limits. Water samples of Mirwah and Kotdiji showed very high level of conductance 3480μS/cm TDS 2227mg/L higher than recommended by World Health Organization. All the water samples were different in copper and zinc. Some of the water samples are suitable for drinking purposes but many have objectionable levels of certain parameters. Therefore the water from Mirwah and Kotdiji are unsuitable for human consumption
