Physicochemical properties of water and heavy metals (Lead and Zinc) in water and sediment of a reservoir and drainage of Jaipur (Rajasthan) – A comparative study


Author(s): Atri Gupta, Pradeep Bhatnagar and Prakash P Bakre

Abstract: In the present study the physicochemical properties (Temperature, alkalinity, chloride, hardness and dissolved oxygen) of water and heavy metal concentration of two water bodies of Jaipur are compared. Heavy metals (lead and zinc) were detected in water and sediment of Ramgarh reservoir and Amani Shah’s drainage of Jaipur. Metals were detected with the help of Atomic absorption spectrophotometer (GBC 902, double beam). In the reservoir the average concentration of lead and zinc was 0.02 μg/ml and 0.22 μg/ml respectively in the water while the average concentration of lead and zinc in the sediment was 3.0 μg/ml and 31.0 μg/ml respectively. While in the Amani Shah’s drainage the average concentration of lead and zinc was 0.1 μg/ml and 4.8 μg/ml respectively in the water while the average concentration of lead and zinc in the sediment was 6.5 μg/ml and 43.5 μg/ml respectively. The quality of water of drainage was found more deteriorated than that of the reservoir.
