ABSTRACT

 

Present investigation deals with the qualitative estimation on seasonal variations of physicochemical parameters on Kali River at Jhulaghat, India. Various physico-chemical parameters such as temperature, transparency, conductivity, TDS, pH, total alkalinity, chloride, free CO2, DO were analysed for various seasons from the period of September 2012 to August 2013. The present study revealed that these physico-chemical parameters are necessary for judging the suitability of water for its prime uses and to improve existing conditions. Correlation between the hydrological attributes showed a profound relationship between them. Over the year of time, the river has been subjected to study and observe modest human interference and water quality was not to be getting deteriorated.

 

Keywords : Kali River, Physico-chemical, Seasonal variation, TDS, Correlation
