Study of Physico-Chemical Parameters of Bhima River, Indapur Tehsil (Maharashtra: India)

Authors(2) :-M. S. Damle , A. R. Sonawane

The research article is carried out on the study of water quality with reference to Bhima River. The monthly changes of river water quality were analyzed by different parameters such as pH, temperature, dissolved oxygen (D.O.), carbon-dioxide, hardness, chloride and alkalinity were investigated to assess the suitability of water for various different purposes. The investigated parameters determined showed the fluctuations in the parameters. These fluctuations in parameters can be caused due to various reasons such as industrialization, over population, man- made activities, pollution and many more due to which water is being highly polluted and that adversely affect aquatic as well as terrestrial life. It is important to check the quality of water before drinking because there are many water borne diseases which adversely affect human population which later can cause death. These parameters can easily describe the quality of water as well by graphical representation it is relevant to find fluctuations month to month.
