Study on Pollution Status of Sediment with Reference to its Physico-Chemical Properties along Industrial Creeks of Surat City, Gujarat

Alpa Varsani | Kapila Manoj

Abstract: The present study aimed to establish pollution status in sediment along with the Industrial creek of Surat city, Gujarat. The physico-chemical properties of the sediment of the creeks of Surat city were analysed. The samples were collected monthly from three different sites for the period of six months. In the present investigation, the pH, temperature, H2S, chloride, nitrite, nitrate, phosphate and silicate were examined in sediment sample. Statistical analysis of the data is presented to find out the correlation among measured variables. The present study revealed depreciate condition of sediment of industrial creek which points out to the need of regular monitoring of water resources and further improvement in the industrial waste water treatment methods.

Keywords: sediment, pollution, industrial creek, physico-chemical properties, Statistical correlation
