Om Prakash Gupta, Manoj Kumar Solanki, Dinesh Kumar Jain, Jayshri Kanoje


This paper aims to carry out analysis of water in Bihar River during winter season in year 2015 in Rewa district of Madhya Pradesh, India. We have analyzed the seasonal variation and change in physical and chemical properties such as temperature, pH, color, odor, alkalinity, turbidity, hardness; and presence of total dissolved solutes (TDS) like calcium (Ca2+), magnesium (Mg2+), chloride (Cl), and sulfate (SO42), of Bihar river water. The variable data of samples were compared with the prescribed limits as suggested by World Health Organisation (WHO), Indian Standard (ISI) and BIS; desirable for water used for drinking purpose. The analysis was carried out for a period of one year 2015 (winter). Readings of some parameters were found within the limits.

Keywords: physico-chemical, Rewa, river water, seasonal variation
