Abstract

Groundwater studies are paramount, focusing primarily on assessing groundwater quality, a critical aspect given its multifaceted importance. Jaipur city stands out as a significant case study, where groundwater quality has undergone a noticeable decline due to the rapid pace of industrialization and urban development. To comprehensively investigate this phenomenon, a field study was conducted during the winter season, involving the random collection of six groundwater samples from diverse areas within Jaipur city, sourced from different hand pumps to ensure a representative sample set. Advanced digital meters were utilized to meticulously measure parameters such as pH, electrical conductivity (EC), and total dissolved solids (TDS). The ensuing analysis uncovers a worrisome trend, highlighting the poor quality of subterranean water in Jaipur. This revelation underscores the pressing need for further research initiatives and concerted actions aimed at addressing the underlying factors contributing to the degradation of groundwater quality in rapidly urbanizing settings like Jaipur.

Keywords: Jaipur City, ground water, winter season, pH, EC, TDS
