Evaluation of Water Quality Indices in Kowndinya Watershed

Munilakshmi N | Shanmukha Srinivas G [2]

Abstract: A systematic study has been carried out to assess the water quality index of River ?Kowndinya? in Chittoor District. water samples collected from eight different locations were analyzed for physico-chemical analysis viz., parameters (Temperature, pH, Dissolved Oxygen, C.O.D., B.O.D., Total Alkalinity, Hardness, Turbidity, Nitrate, Phosphate, Chloride, Sulphate, Acidity, Colour, Total Solids, Total Dissolved Solids, Total Suspended Solids and Most Probable Number) and treatment method for reservoir water was suggested. Each parameter was compared with the standard desirable limit of that parameter in river water with drinking water standards of IS: 10500-2012 and with concrete code of IS: 456-2000. The analytical data of various physical, chemical and biological parameters indicates that some parameters pH, Turbidity and Total solids are found to be in excess than the prescribed limit in some water samples of the study areas. The WQI value indicates that water samples of some sampling stations are quite unfit for drinking purpose because of high value. Suitable suggestions were made to improve the quality of river water.
