ABSTRACT

 

In present study we analyses trace metals contents from ground water of Bilaspur City. The Trace metals covered are Cu, Zn, Ni and Fe. Natural Trace Metals concentration in Ground Water due to erosion and weathering of parent rocks. Trace metal analysis was done on A.A.S. (Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer) by direct aspiration method. Sixty water sample were collected from ten hand pumps of Bilaspur city in different location during the period March 2013 to November 2014. The finding from the analysis indicated that in all the samples Cu, Zn and Ni concentration have been shown below the standard permissible limit but concentration of Fe in five water samples were found higher than the permissible limit.
