Dhanraj M R, Rajesha R "Assessment of Ground Water Quality in Deralakatte Belma Panchayath Mangalore Dakshina Kannada", International Journal of Engineering Trends and Technology (IJETT), V44(1),12-16 February 2017. ISSN:2231-5381. published by seventh sense research group

the present work aims at assessing the water quality parameter in the sub-surface water of Belma Panchayath, Dakshina Kannada district Karnataka. There by monitoring ten sampling locations (4 opens wells & 6 bore wells) within Panchayath for a period of 3 months from march to May 2016. The study area is surrounded by many complexes and public buildings such as hospitals and institutions etc. The quality groundwater due to various geochemical processes like saline water intrusion, evaporation and interaction of groundwater with brines is a serious problem in coastal environments. Understanding the geochemical evolution is important for sustainable development of water resources. For calculating the water quality parameters, the water samples were subjected to comprehensive physic-chemical analysis involving major general parameters ph, EC, TDS, alkalinity, Total Hardness, DO, BOD, COD, Colour, turbidity were considered.
