Vineeta Singh [3]


Abstract: The chemical and physical parameters of the river Ganga segment were observed in the present study. The segment of Uttarakhand in which river Ganga flows is taken as study area from Devprayag (Tehri Garhwal) to Har Ki Pauri (Haridwar). A total of 10 locations were selected and water samples were taken during winter season (February) and summer season (June). During the study it was noticed that the taste of the samples of both the months is agreeable and the odor of the samples of both the months is unobjectionable. In the month of February, the samples are clear whereas in the month of June, the samples are brown colored. In the month of February, the pH of the samples is falling within the desirable limit whereas in the month of June, it is not falling within the desirable limit. In both the months, electrical conductivity (EC) is falling within the desirable limit as prescribed by the World Health Organization.
