Abstract

Water is one of important sources of life for mankind and other living creatures on earth. The life on earth depends upon both quantity and quality of groundwater. According to figures recently issued by the World Health Organization, one people die about every two seconds from diseases associated with bad water. In every minute, three people will die because they do not have ready access to a safe and reliable supply of drinking water. The figures are a grim reminder of how much we need water and how important the quality of water for human life.
