Journal Title:Journal of Chemical, Biological and physical sciences

An attempt has been made to evaluate pollution status of Parashari River in Ganj Basoda town. Structural and functional attributes of water, which may be categorized as physical, chemical and biological have are analyzed both qualitatively and quantitatively in order to have a comprehensive evaluation of the water quality. During the course of study various parameters like DO, BOD, COD, pH, Turbidity and Alkalinity etc were observed. In the present study it was found that physico- chemical characteristics of a few of the river water samples crossed the maximum permissible limit, due to heavy mixing of effluent waste and domestic sewage it was noticed that the physico-chemical parameters indicates balance of the river was disturbed. The study concluded that due to discharge of untreated sewage into the river, the water quality of river has been severely deterioted and the potable nature of water is being lost. Reducing domestic wastewater discharged into the river is the way to make the better water quality of the Parashari River. The present observation shows that the sampling stations, which were receiving less municipal and domestic wastes, comparatively less polluted. The physico-chemical assessment is clearly indicating that Parashari river require proper attention for improvement of river water quality in GanjBasoda town.
