Water Quality Assessment through Water Quality Index (WQI) Determination of Narmada River during Winter Season, at Hoshanabad City, (M. P.)
Abstract: The present study is aimed to analyze the physico-chemical properties and water quality index (WQI) determination to assess the water quality of Narmada River at Hoshangabad city (M. P.) for domestic and irrigation purposes. Total 09 physico-chemical parameters such as pH, Turbidity, Electrical Conductivity (EC), Total Hardness (TH), Total Alkalinity (TA), Total Dissolved Solids (TDS), Chloride, Nitrate and Dissolved Oxygen (DO) were analyzed followed by standard methods suggested by APHA (2012). Water quality index (WQI) has also been determined to assess the quality of Narmada River water and obtained results were evaluated and compared with WHO and BIS water quality standards. The results of this present analysis and the values of WQI obtained indicated that river water quality was found under the category of ?Good? and it may be used for domestic and irrigation purposes after some degree of proper treatment and it is also suggested that public awareness to maintain the water quality of water sources would be helpful.
