Abstract
The current paper is a detailed examination of fluoride in the ground water of six villages in Nekarikallu Mandal, Guntur District, Andhra Pradesh, India. Due to their high fluoride content (0.8 to 1.0 mg/lit), the findings show that the ground waters are not fit for human consumption and must be treated before being used. Because of its ability to reduce the prevalence of dental caries, fluoride is considered an important component of drinking water at concentrations between 0.6 and 1.5 ppm. Nevertheless, fluorosis of the teeth and bones may occur if fluoride concentrations are higher than 1.5 mg/L. Increases in fluoride levels in drinking water over 10 mg/L have been linked to the development of disabling fluorosis. The fluoride content in the groundwater of Nekarikallu Mandal was measured, and the findings indicated a range of values, from 1.1 mg/L to 2.3 mg/L, as presented in this paper.
