dc.description.abstract Ground water is a kind of water that percolate into the ground and becomes source of water supply. Well water is the main source of drinking water in Sennar Research Station. The aim of this study is to determine quantitatively the physical properties and some inorganic constituents of drinking water which change the taste of water and compare the results with the standards recommended by WHO. Five samples were taken from underground well in Sennar Agricultural Research Station (Sennar State).These samples were taken at different times and analyzed for the following parameters: Electrical Conductivity (EC), pH values, Total Dissolved Solids (TDS), Hardness and anions (Cl-, CO3-2, HCO3- and SO4-2) and cations (Na+, K+ and Ca+2).The results showed that the EC values were (400 - 432 μS). The pH values of the samples are (8.1 – 8.8). The TDS values with in the permissible values of WHO (580- 600 ppm). The concentrations of carbonate and bicarbonate in some samples were high (78 and 42 ppm) and (707.6 ppm) for carbonate and bicarbonate respectively. This may be due to the time of taking the samples. The results showed that the concentrations of chloride, sodium, potassium and calssium in the range of the standard values according to the WHO. The concentration of sulphate are very high in all samples (2386.7 – 3750.5 ppm), this disagree with WHO standard. This may be due to the nature of the soil which the water passed through it. This study showed that the water of this well needs some treatments. More studies are needed to determine the effect of these inorganic constituents of this well. en_US
