Publication Description :

The present study was assessed arsenic and salinity hazard of groundwater for drinking purposes in Patuakhali district, Bangladesh.   The EC value was ranged from 520 to 1036.66 μ S/cm with an average value of 687.66 μ S/cm was falling within the drinking water quality DOE and WHO standard. The TDS values were ranged from 332.8-363.4 mg/l indicates that all the values are within the ranges for drinking purposes. The study was also shown that arsenic of the ground water samples were ranged between 0 to 335 ppb which are within permissible limit according to Bangladesh Arsenic Standard (BAS).
