Narmada River is the key source for drinking, domestic and irrigation purposes in the Madhya Pradesh. In the present study water sample of narmada river from Khalghat has been assessed physico-chemically to evaluate its suitability for drinking, domestic and irrigation purposes. The important parameters taken into consideration are Temperature, turbidity, pH, Conductivity, T.D.S, Suspended Solid , Alkalinity, Total hardness, Calcium hardness, Magnesium hardness, Chloride, Fluoride, Dissolve Oxygen, B.O.D. , C.O.D. and Nitrate were determined in the laboratory. The Physico- Chemical parameters were determined as per standard methods of APHA (2002). Obtained results regarding the Narmad River water quality status shows that the overall water quality is suitable and safe for domestic and irrigation purposes.
