Author(s): Imamuddin Ustad

Water is the basic necessity of our life and it is an important natural resource which form’s the
core of natural ecological system. I have tried our best to study the local water conditions
scientifically along with past history. Due the increase of population limited source of water we
have tried to full fill the need of water from various sources like the dug wells, tube wells, local
water bodies (lake and pond) and from the river from Oesmanabad District. Since last five years
it is observed that people who are dependent upon the tube wells are suffering from some of the
disease like constipation, kidney problem, hair loss, graying of hair, acidity etc. i. Objective of
study is to find out the quality of groundwater and its impact on mankind. ii. To know more about
the chemicals present in the groundwater in different areas (Ca &Mg), iii. To find out the effect of
excessive ground water calcium on human health. Data has been collected through experimental
method and observation. The result of chemical analysis of water shows that water of tube wells
contains calcium carbonate, bicarbonate, magnesium carbonate in excess (more then standard
limits) this excess of calcium is the responsible for the above mentioned diseases. Public
awareness for the use of this groundwater is done by contacting thepeople and by public of this
area also the news paper etc. Some remedial methods also suggested for the use of this water. I
am sure if people take precautions they can be protected from such diseases and they can enjoy
healthy and cheerful life.
