Water is regarded as ‘polluted’ when it is changed in its quality or compositions, directly or indirectly as a result of human activities, so that it becomes less suitable for drinking, as well as domestic and other purposes. Pollution of fresh water results largely from the waste disposal. Many of our lakes are becoming increasingly murky, smelly and choked with excessive growth of algae. Most of the rivers have become darkened with sewage, chemicals and other undesirable foreign extraneous matter. Moreover, the rivers carry and deposit their pollutants in to the ocean. Hence, the oceans are also polluted by toxic wastes which cause contamination of sea-foods on a large-scale. The present study has been made to analyze the physicochemical parameters of the river Chnadrabhaga. Samples were collected season wise from sampling site for analyzing the various physicochemical parameters such as Temperature, pH, TDS, Conductivity, DO, free CO2, Sulphate, Phosphate, Nitrate, BOD, COD. The work highlights the condition of this river water in various seasons with respect to the parameters mentioned above.
