Abstract

Bhavani is one of the important Rivers in the Tamilnadu. Many industries, particularly textile processing units, tanneries, and distillery units, are situated on the banks of Bhavani River. These industries let out untreated and partially treated effluents in to the river stream. It is, therefore, decided to study the quality of water and to estimate its pollution load in the River Bhavani near Mettupalayam region. Samples of water were collected at selected points and physio-chemical examinations were carried out. It was observed that at the start at the place before the mixing of effluent the water quality in river was good, but showed a progressive decline from its origin to further distances as it passes through human settlements and industrial areas.
