Abstract

Udupi Power Corporation Limited (UPCL) is a coal based thermal power station in Karnataka, India, established in 2008. The fly-ash which is produced in the process of burning coal to produce power contains trace metals which are toxic in nature. A study was carried out to assess the concentration of zinc (Zn), cadmium (Cd), lead (Pb), copper (Cu), nickel (Ni) and cobalt (Co) in groundwater around the thermal power plant within a radius of 10 kms. Groundwater from open wells at an interval of 1 km was collected from a total of 30 sampling stations along the north, east and south of UPCL. The water samples were tested onsite for pH, electrical conductivity (EC) and total dissolved solids (TDS). Trace metal concentration was estimated using anodic stripping voltammetry
