Abstract

The River Gomti is called the life line of the city Lucknow. The source of domestic water in Lucknow city is river Gomti. About 66% population of Lucknow city is depends upon the water of River Gomti. Aishbagh and Balaganj are the two Water Treatment Plant which are treating the water of River Gomti and after that it is supplied to the city. This paper presents the analysis the physicochemical parameters of water of River Gomti at different locations and in different season (Pre Monsoon, Monsoon and Post Monsoon) and Study of trend of change of physicochemical properties of the water with time. In this research paper evaluate different parameters of gomti river water. The samples are taken from nine different locations of the river Gomti ie. Gaughat, Hardng Bridge, Daliganj Bridge, Hanuman Setu, Nishatganj Bridge, Gomti Brrage, Shaheed path, Bharwara STP and Indira Canal Aquaduct. Laboratory tests are conducted of these samples and they are compared with standard parameters and also compared to each other with time. Parameters like pH, TDS, TSS, DO, BOD, COD and Total Hardness were determined. The parameters showed that the quality of water is not now in safe limit and not good for flora and fauna, but the situation is alarming and degradation is in continuous process, therefore to improve the quality of water. Since, the water of River Gomti is used for drinking purpose in Lucknow city, the continuous monitoring of the pollution level is necessary and immediate action is required for its better management.
