Water quality reflects the collective influence of various physico-chemical and biological criteria of water.
The monitoring of water quality of Mullaiperiyar River in Tamil Nadu was carried out for a period of two
years from July 2010 to June 2012. The important physico-chemical and bacterial parameters were
analyzed. To assess the quality of water at various sampling stations, along with River Mullaiperiyar the
levels of various observed parameters have been compared with the relevant standards. The quality of
the Mullaiperiyar river water was also undertaken for discussion. In many sampling stations, the quality
of the river water examined was found not within the permissible limits for human consumption.
