  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.

In this study impregnated almond shell activated carbon by Zn° and ZnSO4 were used as adsorbent with a particle size of 10-20 mesh. The objective of this research was to determine the ability of impregnated activated carbon in nitrate removal. The modified activated carbon had 1mm effective size, with a uniformity coefficient of 1.18. Potassium nitrate solution was used in batch adsorption experiments for nitrate removal from water. The effects of nitrate concentration, activated carbon dosage and time of contact were studied. Experimental data showed that modified activated carbon by Zn° and ZnSO4 was more effective than virgin almond activated carbon for nitrate removal. The maximum nitrate removal was 64%-80% and 5%-42% for modified activated carbon and virgin activated carbon, respectively. While virgin activated carbon used, nitrate-N decreased from 20 to 15mg/L in 30min reaction. The final nitrate concentration was not in the standard range of WHO recommendations for water quality; while impregnated activated carbons were used, nitrate drcreased to <10mg/L. Maximum removal was over 16-17mg nitrate-N per 1g activated carbon for impregnated activated carbon. The experiments were conducted at pH=6.2, 20°C and initial concentrations of 20mg/L nitrate-N. Increase in modified activated carbon dosage increased the nitrate removal efficiency. The equilibrium time was found to be 45min for modified activated carbon.
