The Indian State of Karnataka is located 11°30' North and 18°30' North latitudes and 74° East and 78°30' East longitude.

It is situated on a tableland where the Western and Eastern Ghat ranges converge into the complex, in the western part of the Deccan Peninsular region of India.

The State is bounded by Maharashtra and Goa States in the north and northwest; by the Arabian Sea in the west. Keywords: Stabilisation of black cotton soils, Fly ash, Hubballi-Dharwad Municipal Corporation, Karnataka, India.

Groundwater quality provides clues on geologic history of water, its influence on the soil or rock masses through which it has passed. This is reflected in the chemical constituents of groundwater. Groundwater is the principle source of drinking water in rural areas of Karnataka state.

Groundwater is generally considered to be cleaner than surface waters. Nevertheless, several factors, like agricultural and domestic waste, land use practices, geological formation, infiltration rate etc., are found to affect the quality of groundwater. • Regur means cotton – best soil for cotton cultivation.

• Most of the Deccan is occupied by Black soil. • Mature soil. • High water retaining capacity. • Swells and will become sticky when wet and shrink when dried. • Self-ploughing is a characteristic of the black soil as it develops wide cracks when dried.

Assessment of groundwater quality of borewells water of hospet Taluka region, Karnataka, India Article in Rasayan Journal of Chemistry 2(1) January with 72 Reads How we measure 'reads'. Keywords: Salinity, Physicochemical parameters, Quality of Groundwater, Water Quality Standards and Sodium Adsorption Ratio, Irrigation Water Abstract An Assessment of quality parameters of groundwater for domestic and irrigation purposes was carried out in Periyapatna Taluk, Karnataka, India.

Water Quality Index (WQI): The assessment of groundwater quality in the given area and its suitability for human consumption is computed based on water quality index values. The average value of each of the six water quality parameters (TDS, pH, TA, TH, Cl and F) for every village has been computed from the individual sample values and given in.

Assessment of Water Quality Index for the Groundwater Groundwater in the study area occurs under water table conditions in the weathered and fractured granite, Gneisses. There is no perennial river in the study area. The major ion chemistry of groundwater of Tumkur taluk has not been studied earlier.

Figure 2. Geological map of study area. Red laterite soil, Black cotton soil and a combination of the above two types. The commonly used building materials (laterite stones) can be easily cut from laterite soil.

Once they are cut and exposed to the atmosphere, it gets harder. Some parts of the district have black cotton soil. As groundwater moves along flow lines from recharge to discharge areas, its chemistry is altered by the effect of a variety of geochemical processes2.

In Karnataka, there is no significant work on water quality except by Jayanthi3, Ayed4 and Jayalakshmi Devi et al.5 In view of the.

The black soils or silt from a lake bed are transported and applied on to these land. The lake's depth is increased by removing the silt, which improves its water harvesting ability. parameters of the virgin black cotton soil has been studied.

Black Cotton Soil Based on the geotechnical properties of the virgin black cotton soils, the degree of expansiveness or swelling potential of these soils is evaluated to be very high (Holtz and Gibbs ,SeedDakshanamurthy and Raman and Chen ).File Size: 96KB.

Thus the analysis of the water quality is very important to preserve and. The present work is aimed at assessing the water quality index (WQI) for the groundwater of Tumkur taluk. This has been determined by collecting groundwater samples and subjecting the samples to a comprehensive physicochemical analysis.

For calculating the WQI, the following 12 parameters have been considered: pH, total hardness, calcium, magnesium, bicarbonate, chloride, nitrate, sulphate Cited by:   Study on chemical characteristics of groundwater and impacts of groundwater quality on human health, plant growth, and industrial sector is essential to control and improve the water quality in every part of the country.

The soils of Peninsular India are formed by the decomposition of rocks in situ, i.e. directly from. from the quarrying and crushing areas. Soil samples from quarry pit, overburden and top soil near the quarry and from the agricultural lands were collected for analysis.

Water quality parameters of the waters samples analysed and the results of the analysis have been used to suggest models for predicting water quality.

Quality of groundwater in a hard rock terrain is more controlled by the rock-water interaction and the residence time of water in aquifers. SOIL NAME (1) Black soil the surface. PROPERTIES. In texture soil vary from loam to clays. Generally they are neutral to alkaline in reaction, calcareous and well supplied with bases such as Ca, Mg, soil are know to get self ploughed due to their swelling and shrinking properties with change in their moisture content.

Geo-Technical Investigation on Black Cotton Soils. By B. Vinod, Prithanjali Shende & Md. Hyder Baba. RGUKT-IIIT Basar, India. Abstract- Black cotton soils are predominantly available in India.

In this quest of finding water resources, suitable groundwater potential sites are being located and explored. Soil classification: Soils in the State have been classified into traditional soil groups namely red soils, laterite soils, black soils, colluvio-alluvial soils, brown forest soils and coastal laterite and alluvial soils.

These soils have been further divided into eleven soil sub-groups.

INTRODUCTION It is essential to ensure proper quality of water used for drinking and irrigation purposes. Rigid pavement construction can be employed to bring out overall economy in Black cotton soil (BC soil) areas.

Use of lime-soil stabilization technology has a great potential in Black cotton soil (BC soil) areas. Use of moorum layer as a barrier between subgrade and sub-base layer has been in practice in view of its cost-effectiveness.The basic objectives of study of black cotton soil are as following: 1) Improvement of bearing capacity of Black Cotton Soil on addition of lime.

2) Variation of Strength of soil at different water content. 3) Effect of lime on CBR value of the soil. In order to achieve the above objective, the black cotton soil has been arbitrarily mixed with File Size: 1MB.
