Physico-Chemical Water Quality Assessment of Betwa River at Vidisha City, (M.P.)

Dr. D. S. Saluja [20]

Abstract: The present study was carried out to assess the water quality of Betwa River at Vidisha city (M.P.).The water samples were collected in plastic containers of 300 ml capacity from six (06) different locations along the river during rainy season from the month of Jun-2022 to Sept-2022. These samples were collected from different selective pollution prone locations and ten (10) important physico-chemical parameters as Temperature, pH, Turbidity, Electrical Conductance (EC), Total Alkalinity (TA), Total Hardness (TH), Total Dissolve Solids (TDS), Dissolve Oxygen (DO), Chlorides and Nitrates were analyzed. The statistical data obtained of the study were compared with the water quality standards as prescribed by WHO and BIS. From the results, it was found that the most of the parameters of Betwa River water were within the permissible limit of WHO and BIS (10500). The results of the overall study reveals that during study period the Betwa River water quality of studied area is suitable for domestic and irrigation purposes and it may be used after some proper treatment. However, more efficient management is also required to conserve the river water quality.
