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). Therefore, it can be concluded that the groundwater is slight to moderate suitable for drinking purposes in terms of arsenic and salinity hazards within the acceptable ranges.
