Abstract: Tapti, a holy river is the key source for drinking, domestic and irrigation purpose in Madhya Pradesh. In the present study water samples of Tapti River from Multai have been studied physico-chemically to evaluate its suitability for drinking, domestic and irrigation purpose in the month of Jul., Aug. and Sept-2019. Monthly variation in important parameters taken into consideration as Temperature, Turbidity, pH, Specific Conductivity, Total Alkalinity, Total Hardness, Calcium Hardness, Magnesium Hardness, Total Dissolved solids, Suspended Solids, Chlorides, Nitrates, DO, BOD, and COD were determined. These physico-chemical parameters were determined as per standard methods of APHA (2012). Results revealed that Tapti River water quality is suitable and safe for domestic and irrigation purposes.
