Bhima River Water, Physico-Chemical Analysis, Water Quality Index (WQI), Drinking Water Quality Standards


Water is the prime constituent that supports life. Hence water is also known as blue gold and is one of the precious natural resources on Earth. Next to air, the other important requirement for human life to exist is water hence earliest civilizations were near or all along the bank of rivers. The water scarcity is mostly man made due to excess population growth and mismanagement of water resources like mainly inefficient use of water for agriculture, reduction in traditional water recharging areas and sewage and wastewater discharge into traditional water bodies. As the Bhima river is the only river which is running nearby Afzalpur village, twelve water samples are collected and are analyzed to know whether the Bhima river water is suitable for drinking purpose. The detailed analysis of Physico-Chemical parameters on pH, Total Dissolved Solids, Total Hardness, Alkalinity, Chloride, Dissolved Oxygen, BOD, Phosphate, Nitrate and Sulphate are carried out as per the standard methods. And it was found that Bhima river water is good for drinking purpose, as all the parameters are within the range of permissible standards as per IS10500:1991.
