Ground water quality of 30 villages of Ladnu, Didvana, Degana, Merta, Tehsils,of Nagaur District,
Rajasthan was analyzed to identify the nature of ground water. The ground water samples were
collected in clean polyethylene one-liter cans and subjected for analysis in the laboratory. The
parameters studied were pH, fluoride (F), chloride (Cl), total dissolved solids (TDS), Ca and Mg
hardness and total hardness (TH). The results revealed that the values of pH were found to be ranging
between 7.1-8.6, chloride content from 100-1220 mg/l and total hardness varied from 80-940 mg/l.
The most important parameter fluoride was found to be 4.3-40 mg/l, which is more than the
permissible limit in all the samples studied. TDS varied from1050-4431 mg/l. The data revealed that
the ground water of these villages of nagaur district contain high fluoride concentration, which leads
to dreaded disease called fluorosis; so ground water is not good for health.
