Physico-Chemical Assesment of Pavana River in Pimpri Chinchwad Area (Pune) in Maharashtra (India)
Abstract: A Physico Chemical Parameters monitoring of Pavana Rivers in Pimpri Chinchwad area pune. In Pune city there are three major rivers named Pavana, Mula and Mutha. For this assessment sampling points were selected from Chinchwad to Ravet and the samples were collected along the course of rivers. The analysis was carried out for the parameters namely pH, Temperature, COD, BOD, DO, TDS, Turbidity in three season i. e Pre Monsoon, Monsoon and Post Monsoon. In many places the continuous discharge of industrial effluents and sewage are being discharged into the rivers, which probably exceeds the contamination in river water body. The results obtained in this investigations revealed that the discharge of untreated industrial effluents and sewage have contributed considerable pollution in the rivers Pavana, hence the water of these rivers is unsafe for consumption or human use and needs preventive action and it also effects on the aqua culture and environment.
