Muhammad Amin Mezan (2021) Geology of Kampung Sungai Tupai, Gua Musang and assesment of groundwater quality parameters in The Coastal Aquifers of Bachok, Kelantan. Final Year Project thesis, Universiti Malaysia Kelantan. (Submitted)


The present FYP research project focuses on geological mapping of Kampung Sungai Tupai, Gua Musang and the groundwater quality parameters at Bachok. Geological map was produced on 1:25,000 scale by using secondary data such as satellite imagery data). Based on geological mapping, the lithology is mainly comprised of limestone, tuff, slate, interbedded sandstone and alluvium and the age of this rocks are around Permian to Quarternary. Meanwhile, groundwater quality in coastal aquifers of Bachok can pose serious issue as it can cause contamination of groundwater. Therefore, groundwater quality parameters determine by using geochemical analysis with help of jabatan Mineral Geosains (JMG) Kelantan. Total four groundwater samples were collected from different location which were IBS UMK, Tangki Air UMK, SMKA Tok Bachok and SK Chantum with help of JMG Kelantan. The physic-chemical parameters which have been analysed in this research was pH, temperature, turbidity, conductivity, Total Dissolved Solids and Total Suspended Solids, Chloride, Fluoride, Nitrate, Sulphate, Bicarbonate, Magnesium, Calcium, Potassium, Sodium, Iron and Manganese. All the results of all parameters were compared with WHO and MOH guidelines for drinking quality of groundwater. Based on the result, the groundwater at IBS UMK, Tangki Air UMK and SMKA Tok Bachok are classified as fresh water and have good quality of water. Groundwater at SK Chantum is classify as slightly saline water, maybe because of seawater intrusion. Over all other physico-chemical parameters of all the groundwater samples are safe to use and within the permissible limit of the National Guideline of Raw Water Quality Standards by Ministry of Health Malaysia except location SK Chantum.
