Author(s): Ravi Kant Pareek, Ambrina S. Khan, Parteek Srivastva, Surendra Roy

The present study was carried out to determine the physico-chemical properties of Ghaggar River water from 20 different sampling sites throughout stretch of Ghaggar River. River water samples were collected from 16 sites out of 20 sites as the last four sampling sites were dried, during the month of May, 2015 and River water samples were taken to the laboratory and analyzed. The analysis was done for the 40 parameters like Turbidi-ty, pH, Total Dissolved Solids, Electrical Conductivity, Total Hardness, Total Alkalinity, Chloride, Calcium,Magne-sium, BOD, COD, DO, Iron, Nickel, Cadmium, total phosphorus pesticides and MPN. pH shows that Ghaggar Riv-er water is alkaline in nature. Turbidity and Total Dissolved Solids was found above the WHO permissible limits, iron is dominating heavy metal. All the sites were infected by Coliform.
