Abstract :

Quality of drinking water has always been considered important in public health paradigm. Provision of potable water to people is necessary in assuring health as well as prevention of spreading of water born diseases. Treatment of water is traditional practice in public distribution system in cities and towns all over the world. Kolhapur is industrial, educational and cultural city in the Western Maharashtra getting considerable rise in population each year. Water supply to citizens is through pumping stations located at outskirts of the city which are looked after by Municipal Corporation. Various characteristics like pH, turbidity with other chemical characteristics which are important for drinking water were analyzed for six months continuously. Samples from inlet and outlet were taken for analysis to check the efficiency of the WTPs. Further tap water analysis was also carried out to asses any influence of piped water distribution. All plants are seen to be efficient in terms of drinking water limits prescribed by different agencies with indication of requirement of supplementary water treatment with provision of advanced technology while considering the rising population of the city. The results obtained about drinking water characteristics are discussed in the paper.
