River Belgirinalla is a small tributary of river Hasdeo. River Hasdeo is the Life Line of Korba, Chhattisgarh. The present study was taken on River Belgirinalla. It is an important water source of village Parasabhatha and Belgiri Basti. This river is greatly influenced by effluents of industrial units and domestic wastes. There are major fly ashes, red muds and sewerage ponds situated near the River Belgirinalla, its overflow directly mixes with above mentioned river. The study reveled that the total solids, total dissolved solids, total suspended solids, ammonia, nitrite, phosphate and chemical oxygen demand of water of this area was higher than the limits. Biological oxygen demand was under the limit, DO was found lower than standard limits. The sediment of River Belgirinalla contains higher concentration of Pb2+ and Cd2+ than the permissible limit recommended by Indian Standards and World Health Organization. The present investigation highlights the adverse effect of surface water and sediment due to mixing of industrial and domestic wastes.
