ABSTRACT

 

Water quality of river Betwa was assessed during different seasons of 2005-2006 to evaluate the degree of pollution caused due to input of industrial as well as domestic waste water. During the present investigation, the water quality of river Betwa in the upstream was observed quite good in comparison to downstream of the river, which was found to be highly polluted due to discharge of municipal sewage through surface drains and industrial effluent of Mandideep industrial area.
