ABSTRACT

 

Water quality and water level plays an important role in any river basin. The quality of the aquifer may detoriated due to many reasons such as industrial and domestic waste, tidal effect and excess pumping near the coastal area which allows the seawater to deterioate the freshwater aquifer. In this study, the seasonal coefficient of correlation is found out for water quality and water level of Netravathi and Gurpur river basin by using different sampling locations near the river banks. In the water quality chloride/ total alkalinity ratio is used. The water level and water quality is taken for the season of January to June. This coefficient of correlation gives the variation of water quality and water level in the season of January to June. The variation will mainly help to find out the water quality change with respect to water level in the non monsoon season.
