The present work is aimed at assessing the water quality index (WQI) for the surface water of Dimbhe Dam near Near Shinoli, village of Taluka Ambegaon, District Pune, Maharashtra State, India. Surface water samples were collected at three sampling points, S1 upstream of village Shinoli, S2 near village Shinoli, and S3 downstream of village Shinoli,. The samples are subjected for comprehensive physical, chemical and biological analysis. For calculating the WQI, the following 14 parameters have been considered: pH, Total Dissolved Solids, Total Hardness, Calcium, Magnesium, Chloride, Nitrate, Sulphate, DO, BOD, Alkalinity, Sodium, Potassium and Fluoride. The high value of WQI has been found to be mainly from the higher values of TDS, Hardness, BOD and Nitrate. The analysis reveals that the surface water of the area needs some degree of treatment before consumption, and it also needs to be protected from the perils of contamination.
