Quality control Assurance

The water quality of the major water resources in the rural areas has been assessed with a clear indication that pollution effects are mainly organic due to open defecation, improper construction of wells, non-hygienic nature of overhead tanks and porosity of the soil affecting underground water. The study shows the potential dangers of the toxic and health implications of consuming raw water. The overwhelming risk is that this contaminated water may be transported to different parts of the country from the source or through the food chain. Because massive agricultural activities are going on in these areas, this study, therefore, calls for best practices to reduce or eliminate water contamination from fertilizers and open defecation to safeguard people's health. The study will serve as a framework for planning, further assessment, monitoring, and aid for Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) in the study area.
