STUDIES OF FLUORIDE CONTENT IN GROUND WATER IN KUKSHI BLOCK (DHAR), MADHYA PRADESH, INDIA
AbstractWater is one of the most and main component for the survival of any living being since life on earth was begun in the seas and it is one of the most unusual natural compounds found on our earth. Hand pump is the major source of drinking water in the small villages of Kukshi block of Dhar district. Hand pump water quality is degrading at a faster rate day by day therefore, regular monitoring is essential. The present study deals with the fluoride concentration at selected zone of Kukshi block of Dhar district of Madhya Pradesh. Different drinking water sources of Kukshi block were selected from different sampling station and were analyzed for fluoride concentration. The Fluoride concentration in East zone is high and in West zone the Fluoride concentration is low.
