Abstract: Water is the most important natural resource in the world since without it life cannot exist and most industries could not operate. Hence water resources should be used in the best possible economic way and research should be carried on for finding out dry methods of production. In this study, Water Quality Index (WQI) of Bhatta waterfall, Dehradun was analyzed with the help of ten physicochemical parameters such as Alkalinity, Calcium, Chloride, Electrical Conductivity, Magnesium, Nitrate, pH, Sulfate, Total Dissolved Solid, Total Hardness to know the suitability for drinking purpose during pre and post monsoon seasons of the year 2022. The values of Calcium, Magnesium which exceeded the permissible limit during both monsoon seasons.
