Analysis of Physico-Chemical and Biological Characteristics of River Ramganga at Bareilly

Abstract

Water is a unique natural liquid which is quite essential for all kinds of life. Rivers are the best examples of fresh water. River Ramganga is a major tributary of Ganga River that flows to the south-west from Kumaun Himalayan. Domestic water, solid wastes, industrial and agricultural effluent from various areas is dumped into the river Ramganga through different drains. Water samples from five different sites of river Ramganga were collected and analyzed for physicochemical and biological parameters such as Temperature, transparency, pH, Total Solids, Total Dissolved Solids, Dissolved Oxygen, BOD, COD, Electrical Conductivity, turbidity, alkalinity, calcium, nitrate, and total biomass during the rainy season, to assess the quality of the river. The study revealed that as per physicochemical and biological parameters which exceed the permissible limits render the water of the river Ramganga to be unfit for drinking purposes and it is unhealthy for the aquatic life too.
