These Physico-chemical parameters of Wastewater disposed off in the river and outlet of ponds of entire Ujjain city were studied. In the present study sample of river water were collected during the year. Physico-chemical parameters namely pH, turbidity, TS, TDS, TSS, CaH, MgH, Cl, SO, NO, BOD, COD were analyzed using standard methods prescribed as in the APHA (1998). The result indicates that the water is unsuitable for both domestic and industrial use as there exist possibility of corrosion in boilers.
