IV SEM (Individual Project)

An assessment of drinking water quality of Cochin City with special reference to Pesticidal contamination.

Potable water is a resource of increasing value in a nation where good water quality is becoming increasingly scarce. Pesticidal contamination of water is a subject of national importance because they are transported from the areas they are applied to other location where they may cause serious health problems. Hence an attempt was made to study the pesticidal contamination in various sources of drinking water such as Packaged drinking water, Municipality tap water, and Well water of Cochin City. The study showed that pesticidal content was totally absent in the sampled brands of Packaged drinking water and in Municipality tap water but they were not free from microbial contamination though they claim various purification processes. The ground water in Eloor region contained pesticides at alarming rates and the most obvious source of the contamination was found to be an organochlorine pesticide manufacturing plant, Hindustan Insecticides Limited. Studies in Eloor have shown various health problems with higher death rates QUALIFICATI

due to cancer, birth defects, bronchitis, asthma and depression.The pesticides measured in this work are slated for reduction and elimination by Stockholm Convention. III SEM (Group Project)

An ecological study on VadakkekothagiriPadashekaram at Pallom Region of Kuttanad wetland ecosystem.

Wetlands are the most productive ecosystems and more than 70% of these fresh water resources are used for agriculture. Unfortunately, 50%of them have been lost due to unsustainable development, mismanagement, addition of pesticide and herbicide, and excess fertilizer use. The rice bowl of Kerala-Kuttanad wetland ecosystem, is facing serious threat to its existence due to habitat modification, land filling, water pollution, climatic and hydrological changes, weed infestation, fish kills, low fish production, declining biodiversity etc. therefore an ecological study was undertaken to know the extent of deterioration caused in Pallom region. In the study, the distribution of planktonic forms and benthos, and quality of water and sediment supported the reason for the excessive growth of various native, invasive and exotic aquatic macrophytes at alarming rates in this wetland. The distribution, abundance and growth pattern of the macrophytes were also studied.

A Study on Physico-Chemical parameters of Water and Sediment of Pallom region of Kuttanad, Kerala with reference to ecology of weeds. Wetlands are often referred as the Kidneys of Landscapes. The Kuttanad region, the rice bowl of Kerala, comprising estuarine and fluvial systems, is a highly complex and dynamic wetland ecosystem in Kerala. The modifications in hydrology and physico-chemical environments of wetlands have a direct impact in their biotic resources such as fishes,planktons and benthos, macrophytes etc. The study was dealt with the fluctuations of physico-chemical parameters of water and sediments at various locations at Pallom in Kuttanad.
