SUMAN SHARMA AND Y.K. WALIA

Abstract

Present investigation consist the analysis of water quality parameters of river Beas in Himachal Pradesh during Monsoon Season. Physical Aggregate Properties such as alkalinity, conductivity, pH, temperature, total dissolved solids (TDS), total hardness, turbidity, Metals such as calcium, magnesium, potassium, sodium, cadmium, copper, iron, lead, Non Metals including chloride, fluoride, nitrate, biochemical oxygen demand (BOD), chemical oxygen demand (COD), Colliform and Escherichia coli were analyzed from six sampling stations, i.e. Beaskund, Shamshi, Pandohdam, Dharmpur, Nadaun and Pongdam in the study area. The analysis of data reveals that turbidity, iron and lead, were found to be higher than the acceptable limit prescribed by Bureau of Indian standards (BIS), 2012 for drinking water in India. Colliform and E. coli were present in all the sampling stations of river Beas. All the other parameters were within the limit prescribed by World Health Organization (WHO), 2011 and BIS, 2012.
