Abstract

Fluoride is one of the critical chemical parameter, which influences the quality of dam water. Fluoride in water was determined by SPADNS method by using a UV-visible spectrophotometer at 570 nm. Excess intake of fluoride through drinking water causes fluorosis on human beings in many states of India, including Maharashatra. The concentration of F was estimated from three sampling sites named as up stream, mid stream and down stream i.e. S , S and S . The entire study was carried out during January to December 2010. The observed values showed the variations during the research study were ranged between 0.25-1.2 mg/L. The concentration of F was found within the permissible limit i.e.1.5 mg/L.
