Experimental Investigation of Drainage Water - A Case Study




Drainage Water, Residual Sodium Carbonate (RSC), Sodium adsorption ratio (SAR)


As Ananthapuramu is one of the drought prone area, it is suffering with lack of water for various purposes like domestic, agriculture, industries etc. The Drainage from the entire area of habitations of Ananthapuramu town (Andhra Pradesh, India) entering in to ‘Tadakaleru’ till the point of confluence at Singanamala tank has been considered for the present study. In the study area, drainage water is being used for agriculture purpose due to non availability of sufficient water. Samples from thirteen selected locations have been collected for testing. Out of thirteen locations, continuous flow along Nadimivanka has been considered from locations 4 to 13. Flow from locations 1 to 3 is joining between locations 8 and 9. The locations 1 to 8 are existing within the town area where there is a contamination due to habitations. From location 8 upto 13, the drainage is flowing freely without further contamination. The objective of study is to find various parameters like Sodium adsorption ratio (SAR), pH, Boron, Residual Sodium Carbonate (RSC), Turbidity etc., that are present in the drainage water. It has been observed that the values of various parameters are increasing for the samples 1 to 3 and 4 to 8 and are decreasing for the samples 9 to 13. It can be suggested that the crops which can tolerate the obtained ranges of parameters are to be selected.
