  A survey of fluoride in ground water in Tanzania showed that 30% of the waters used for drinking exceeded mg/l fluoride. In Malawi and the Republic of South Africa fluoride levels beyond mg/l and occurrence of dental fluorosis have also been reported. The technology also removes fluoride. A water pyramid with a total area of m 2. Haruna et al () studied the distribution of Fluoride in drinking waters from Kaltungo area, they recorded a concentration range of mg/l for fluoride in surface water, mg/l for. Fluoride concentration and other water quality parameters in ground water samples from 65 villages were assessed. A total of drinking water sources ( hand pump, 80 tube well, 70 open well.   This study was carried out to assess the fluoride levels of groundwater from open wells, consumed by the residents of three communities located in two distinct geological terrains of southwestern Nigeria. Fluoride concentration was determined using spectrophotometric technique, while analysis of other parameters like temperature, pH and total dissolve solids followed standard methods.

ALABAMA Ground-Water Quality In Alabama, ground water is the major source for public supply about 52 percent of the population depends on ground water (see population distribution, fig. 1). The principal area for ground- water withdrawal is the Coastal Plain of Alabama. All principal. International standards for drinking water The WHO guideline value for fluoride in drinking water is mg/l. Above mg/l mottling of teeth may occur to an objectionable degree. Concentrations between 3 and 6 mg/l may cause skeletal fluorosis. Continued consumption of water with fluoride levels in excess of 10 mg/l can result in. Fluorine is an essential nutrient, and excessive or deficient fluoride contents in water can be harmful to human health. The shallow groundwater of the Jiaolai Basin, China has a high fluoride content. This study aimed to (1) investigate the processes responsible for the formation of shallow high-fluoride groundwater (SHFGW); (2) identify appropriate methods for in situ treatment of SHFGW. Although the region as a whole is relatively rich in water resources, water availability and quality vary dramatically throughout the area. Water resources include rivers—the Chattahoochee, Alabama, Mississippi, Sabine, Trinity, Brazos, Colorado, Rio Grande, and Grijalva—and the immense groundwater resources that are the focus of this chapter.
