Abstract

The study has been carried to assess the water quality index of Pahuj River at Unnao Balaji, Madhya Pradesh. The samples were collected from 10 different locations and analyzed for various physico-chemical parameters like Temperature, pH, Turbidity, Total Hardness, Chloride, Dissolved Oxygen, Biological Oxygen Demand, Fluoride, Iron and Nitrate. Water Quality Index serves as the basis for environment assessment of water in relation to pollution load categorization and designation of classes. The value of Water Quality Index (WQI) at almost all location indicates that water of Pahuj River at Unnao Balaji is unfit for drinking purpose due to disposal of heavy amount of sewage into the River.
