Water Quality Assessment of Tapti River Using Water Quality Index (WQI), at Multai City, District - Betul (M.P.)

Dr. D. S. Saluja [20]

Abstract: The present study was aimed to assess the water quality index (WQI) of Tapti River at Multai city, District-Betul, (M.P.). Water Quality Index serves as the basis for environment assessment of water in relation to pollution load. The water samples were collected from six (06) different pollution prone sampling stations located at Tapti River and analyzed for seven (07) important physico-chemical parameters as pH, Electrical Conductance (EC), Turbidity, Total Hardness (TH), Total Dissolve solids (TDS), Calcium and Magnesium. The data so obtained was also used to calculate the Water Quality Index to get better understanding of overall water quality. The standards for drinking water suggested by Word Health Organization (WHO) and Bureau of Indian Standard (BIS) were also compared with the calculated values of WQI. The values of WQI were found ranged from 47.12 to 56.28 which indicates that at almost all locations of sampling stations at Tapti River in Multai, the water quality was found under the category of ?Good? and ?Fair? and it may be used for domestic and irrigation purpose after some proper and necessary treatment. It is also suggested that the public awareness would be helpful to maintain and improve the quality of river water.
