An attempt has been made to analyze the public hand pump water from seven different locations of northernmost Chhattisgarh. The study indicated that, except at one sampling station viz. Trisuli, the fluoride levels v~s within the prescribed limit of WHO standards of drinking waters. Trisuli water showed marginal levels of fluoride contents (1.4 mg/L). The study revealed the heterogenous fluoride distribution in the underground water and the result of these analyses are concluded that proper de-fluoridation measures seems to be needed to protect the habitants of Trisuli area from problems of fluorosis.
