Abstract:
A study to find the toxicity of heavy metals in the water quality of Ggana river in Kanpur, Uttar Pradesh, India area was carried out over a period of Jan. 2018 to Dec. 2018. Water samples from Kanpur (Shuklaganj New Ganges Bridge, Ordnagar, Baba Ghat, Bhairav ​​Ghat and Khayora Kati) were analyzed for heavy metals like Cu, Cr, Fe, Mn, Zn, Cd and Pb. The pH of these water samples was found in alkaline range (7.21-8.18). The concentration of PB varies between 0.44±0.32 ppm and 0.33±0.31 ppm. Cd concentration was seen to range from 0.022±0.11ppm to 0.008±0.06 ppm. The content of Cr is from 0.054±0.56 to ppm 0.38±0.33ppm. Highest concentrations of heavy metals of Cu (0.173±0.283ppm) and PB (0.44±0.32ppm) were found in Ordnance town sample, Cr (0.054±0.56) in Khyora katari water sample, Cd (0.022±0.11ppm) in Baba ghat water sample, Fe (0.366±0.98ppm) in Khyora katari water sample.
