Seasonal Fluctuations of Water Quality Parameters in Selected Points of Bhadra River, Karnataka, India
Seasonal variation of physico-chemical parameters were studied at five different stations at Shimoga region, south of India. Surface water samples were taken and collected from river in and around of Bhadravathi town, Shimoga and analysed for temperature (ºC), pH, conductance, TS, TDS, TSS, turbidity, hardness, total alkalinity, D.O., NO3-, Cl -, Ca +2 and Mg +2,. One of the sites (SP3) found to be moderately polluted due to over anthropogenic disturbance. The results were considered for correlation analysis and it was observed that many of the parameters bear a good positive correlation and some are showed negative correlation among the sampling points of the study area.
