Water Quality Purification

After the origin of life in water everything of living organisms is sustained by water. Not only biotic components, abiotic components on the Earth depends on water. Water is not only essential to life but is predominate inorganic constituent of living matter forming nearly three quarters of the weight of a living cell. In living tissue water is the medium for many biological reactions and extraction processor of inorganic nutrients photosynthetic ingredients and minerals etc. are transported in aqueous medium. In short water is essential for life and plays a unique role virtually as medium in all biological process.

Water quality includes all physical, chemical and biological factors that influence the beneficial use of water. Physico-chemical analysis is the prime consideration to assess the quality of water for its best utilization like drinking, irrigation, fisheries, industrial purpose etc. and helpful in understanding the complex processes, interaction between the climatic and biological processes in the water.

River Narmada is the most important river system of the state of Madhya Pradesh. Besides being a very important source of water. The Narmada basin lies between east longitudes 72o32’ to 81o45’ and north latitudes 21o20’ to 28o45’. Narmada River is a lotic water resource. It is the only non snow fed perennial river in India. Narmada River water is mainly used for irrigation, drinking, fishery, electricity generation and domestic purpose. Few of the physico-chemical parameters are studied to assess the quality of water. Pollution is the biggest problem now a days. Besides our atmosphere ,soil and all water resources are affected by pollution

The article describes effect of  Homa Therapy – based on the ancient science of Vedas which offers solutions to reduce the pollution of our environment and water recourses. Some preliminary studies about the efficacy of the method are reported, showing, e.g., that water in different sampling stations of Narmada region. During the study period 4 sampling station were selected for the water quality assessment.

Water samples were collected pre-cleaned polythene containers and preserved according to stand red method (APHA 2002) at monthly interval from the selected sampling station. From and brought to the laboratory for various physico-chemical analysis.
