Abstract


Groundwater is growing problem in many parts of the world because of fluorine contamination. It’s good for teeth enamel and help to prevent dental caries. In excessive does, however, it will lead to poisoning, fluorine. In India population more than 66 million, especially in rural parts are dependents on groundwater for drinking water supply and have potential  risk of developing fluorine therefore it’s very important to understand the mechanism of working of fluorine in groundwater in order arise the problem as effectively as possible. In the state M.P., there is reported occurrence of fluoride in water table however as compared to other state in India the problem are relatively localized. Previous studied around dharma-puri town have shown level of fluoride in ground water exceed both 1.0mg/L, a limit of drinking set by bureau of Indian standard and 1.5mg/L the limit  set by WHO, where as in DHAR, fluorine concentration whereas, high as 1.8mg/L the present study reports the result on the investigation hydro geo chemical in characteristics of the ground water of DHAR districts with an aim to understand the mechanism of mobilization of fluoride. This could then use to create more effective mitigation systems.
