Abstract

Air is the one of the important factor for survival of human beings and other organisms. It is emerging public health problem in developing countries. In this investigation Udgir city has been studied for the Ambient Air Quality status. Udgir is the major taluka in the Latur district of Maharashtra India. For the study purpose two sampling stations were selected from January to December 2013. Shivaji Chowk, Captain Krisnakant Chowk and Maharashtra Udaygiri Mahavidyalaya. Four pollutants were considered for the determining the air quality they are sulfur dioxide, oxides of nitrogen, RSPM (respirable suspended particulate matter and SPM (Suspended particulate matter. From these three areas, two areas viz.. Shivaji Chowk and Captain Krishnakant Chowk the levels of pollutant like SPM and RSPM were majorly more than permissible level as compare to CPCB (Central Pollution Control Board) New Delhi. The average concentrations of air pollutants at Shivaji Chowk area and Captain Krishnakant Chowk area were higher than that of Maharashtra Udaygiri Mahavidyalaya area. The levels of SO2 and NO2 were below the levels of CPCB guidelines in the both areas. The areas viz. Shivaji Chowk area and Captain Krishnakant Chowk area have moderate air pollution whereas the area of Maharashtra Udaygiri Mahavidyalaya has light air pollution.
