Paper Title
Seasonal Variation Of The Heavy Metal Contamination Of Ground Water In And Around Of Industrial Area Of Kakinada, East Godavari District, Andhra Pradesh

Abstract- Ground water samples were collected from in and around industrial area of Kakinadaduring monsoon, and post monsoon season during the year of 2010-2011 and 2011-2012. The concentration of trace metals such as Copper, zinc, Iron and Manganese were determined using atomic absorption spectrophotometer and the results were compared with the World Health Organization (WHO 2003) standard values. This study revealed the presence of some heavy metals in few ground water samples and hence refers heavy metal contamination of water sources. This study suggests that the preventive measures which are to be adopted to control the contamination of excess Copper, Zinc, Iron and Manganese present in the water samples collected on either sides of the channel.
