This paper basically focused to examine the water quality of various potable water sources viz. ground water at Pavnar. During experimentation, Physico-chemical parameters of water were tested to ensure good quality of water. But chemical analysis of water provide a .

      Ground water is one of Hawaii's most important natural resources. It is used for drinking water, irrigation, and domestic, commercial, and industrial needs. Ground water provides about 99 percent of Hawaii's domestic water and about 50 percent of all freshwater used in the State. Total ground water pumped in Hawaii was about million gallons per day during , which is less than 3 percent. The USGS collects and analyzes chemical, physical, and biological properties of water, sediment and tissue samples from across the Nation. The Water Data for the Nation discrete sample data base is a compilation of over million historical water quality analyses in the USGS district data bases through September

Leaching is the movement of a chemical (natural or synthetic) with water moving downward through soil or rock.

When water that is moving downward from the surface contains chemicals -- or comes into contact with them as it moves -- the chemicals may be carried along with the water until they eventually reach the groundwater.

To protect the quality of Hawaii’s underground sources of drinking water from chemical, physical, radioactive, and biological contamination that could originate from injection well activity. Process permits and project reviews for new and renewal permits, modifications, and abandonment of injection wells.

Contaminants may come from herbicides, pesticides, industrial solvents, fuels and other sources which are applied, spilled, leaked or disposed of into the ground.

Groundwater contamination is an especially significant concern in Hawaii because nearly all of Hawaii’s drinking water comes from groundwater. The State Water Quality Plan is one of the plans that together comprise the Hawaii Water Plan required by the State Water Code (Chapter C, HRS) adopted by the Legislature in File Size: 9MB.

Selection of groundwater chemistry information is critical to understanding whether the aquifer is contaminated or whether wells used for drinking water have intercepted some contaminated ground or surface water adjacent to the well.

The report presents the results of a 2-year study of ground-water quality for the entire State of Hawaii Topics: groundwater, chemistry, drinking water, Hawaii.

Groundwater will normally look clear and clean because the ground naturally filters out particulate matter. But, natural and human-induced chemicals can be found in groundwater.

As groundwater flows through the ground, metals such as iron and manganese are dissolved and may later be found in high concentrations in the water. Land-use practices on tropical oceanic islands can have large impacts on reef ecosystems, even in the absence of rivers and streams.

Land-based pollutants, such as fertilizers and chemicals. The Hawai‘i State Water Well project digitized all of the water well files at the DLNR, Commission of Water Resource Management (CWRM).

Though public information, the files existed previously in print/paper format, so prior access to the information required going in person to the CWRM office.

The map below shows the location of each water well [ ]. Chemical parameters of water quality/ Chemical characteristics of water. These are some chemical aspects of water quality that helps to determine whether water is polluted or not.

Chloride ion: Normally all types of water contains chloride. About 50 percent of Hawaii’s water supply comes from ground water sources. Ground water, which is also used for agricultural, industrial, and domestic purposes, is the principal source of municipal water supplies in Hawaii.

Consequently, protecting the quality and quantity of ground water throughout the State is essential to Hawaii’s future well being. Chemical quality of ground water in Hawaii.

The two main ground-water-related problems in the State of Hawaii are contamination by organic or inorganic chemicals associated with both agricultural and non-agricultural activities, and the availability of potable fresh ground water.

Both problems are ultimately related to ground-water quality. 2 ground-water resources, oahu, hawaii Pumpage from wells in the Pearl Harbor area increased from less than 20 mgd (million gallons per day) in to mgd in Cited by: The study of physico-chemical and biological characteristics of this ground water sample suggests that the evaluation of water quality parameters as well as water quality management practices should be carried out periodically to protect the water resources.

Keywords: Ground water, water quality standards, physico-chemical, Water Quality Index. roundwater quality comprises the physical, chemical, and biological qualities of ground water.

Temperature, turbidity, color, taste, and odor make up the list of physi-cal water quality parameters.

Since most ground water is colorless, odorless, and without specific taste, we are typically most concerned with its chemical and biologi-cal by:. organic chemical oontaminants discovered principally in in potable grO'ahu.
