Physicochemical Analysis of Drinking Water in Kohdasht City Lorestan, Iran

A. Jafari, H. Mirhossaini, B. Kamareii and S. Dehestani

This study consisted of the determination of some physiochemical properties in drinking water samples from the Kohdasht region of the Lorestan, Iran, where drinking water sources are ground water. The purpose was to ascertain the quality of water from these sources. Samples were taken from sixteen sampling points and analyzed for the following parameters, Ca, Na, K, Mg, Mn, NO3- , NO- , SO42- , PO43- , F- , Cl- , TDS, EC, alkalinity, hardness and turbidity using the procedure outline in the standard methods. The data showed the variation of the investigated parameters in samples as follows: pH 7.5-7.76, Electrical Conductivity (EC) 705.67-976 μS cm-1, turbidity 0.1-0.4 NTU, PO43- 0.11-0.31 mg L-1, NO3- 11.44-41.36 mg L-1, NO2- 0.017-0.514 mg L-1, SO42- 44-90 mg L-1 and Mn 0.002-0.056 mg L-1. The concentrations of most of the investigated parameters in the sources of drinking water samples from Kohdasht region were within the permissible limits of the World Health Organization drinking water quality guidelines.
