This study is focused on the elemental analysis of fourteen-branded domestic bottled water available in the Al- Qassim area of the Saudi Arabia. The concentration of
nineteen elements (Be, B, Al, Cr, Mn, Fe, Co, Ni, Cu, Zn, As, Se, Mo, Ag, Cd, Sb, Ba, Sn, and Pb) on the bottled water samples were analyzed using Inductively Coupled Plasma Optical Emission Spectroscopy (ICP-OES) followed by the standard procedure. The results obtained indicated that all of the elements except Boron in the bottled water were found within the permissible limits set by standards used.

Previous studies indicate that breast milk arsenic concentrations are relatively low even in areas with high drinking water arsenic. However, it is uncertain whether breastfeeding leads to reduced infant exposure to arsenic in regions with lower arsenic concentrations. The researchers estimated the relative contributions of breast milk and formula to arsenic exposure during early infancy in a U.S. population.

A study carried out by the Bhabha Atomic Research Centre has revealed that samples of packaged drinking water from the city have been found to contain levels of bromate, chlorite and chlorate highe

Availability of clean water and adequate sanitation facilities are of prime importance for limiting diarrheal diseases. We examined the spatial information on the groundwater quality and sanitation facilities of a village in southern India using Geographic Information System (GIS) tools. Place of residence, position of wells and latrines were mapped and well water samples were tested for microbial contamination (Total Coliform Counts (TCC), Fecal Coliform Counts (FCC) and Fecal Streptococcal Counts (FSC)).

It is very tough trade-off between economic growth and environmental sustainability in a faster growing developing country like India. The Environmental Kuznets Curve (EKC) hypothesis proposes that environmental degradation initially increases with the income rise, and then begins to decrease once a certain threshold of income growth is achieved. The present study is an endeavour to explore EKC in relation to safe drinking water access, groundwater resource development and utilisation, as well as its

Groundwater is the most preferred source of water in various user sectors in India on account of its near universal availability, dependability and low capital cost. The present study mainly focus on the drinking water quality index of one of the fast growing city of India, Patna. The city has a population of 58.3lakhs of people which mainly relay ground water for drinking. The ground water from fourteen stations was analysed.
