Physicochemical Properties, Contamination and Suitability of Canal Water for Irrigation, Lahore Branch Pakistan
The pollution status of Lahore branch canal was determined by physical, chemical and metal constituents because the water is used for irrigation of lands in and around the city. The average result of each physical, chemical and metal parameter at 12 different sites (Location-1 to Location12) of Lahore branch canal was compared with Food and Agricultural organization (FAO). All physical and chemical parameters were within standards limit while metals concentrations were found in variable quantities in canal water samples. cadmium, copper and chromium concentration was found much higher than the permissible FAO standards.
