The plot clearly indicate that in the general chemistry of water of the study area, Na+-Ca2+-HCO3water type is dominated which indicate water of the study area is strongly influenced by gneiss and granite rocks because Na+ and HCO3 mainly come from weathering of alkali-feldspars from rocks related with recharge areas [30].
Among all water samples HCO3 found higher than the regulations set by WHO (250mg/l) except sample 4 and 5 and water having 10meq/L is not suitable for irrigation, therefore samples 4 and 5 can be safely utilized for long-term irrigation [22].
