ABSTRACT:
Surface water is an important source of water which is commonly used for multiple uses such as in agriculture, drinking purposes, small scale industrial applications, and for household works. Due to rapid industrial growth, population explosion, and increased fertilizer application the surface and ground water have been continuously polluted. In the present study, monitoring and assessment of some physicochemical parameters of different pond water of Mauaima area (Allahabad district, India) has been carried out to decipher the pollution load in the fresh water ecosystem. Several physicochemical parameters such as turbidity, salinity, total hardness, TDS, DO, BOD, COD, and heavy metals (Cd, Cu, Pb, Cr, and Zn) have been analyzed for water samples.
KEYWORDS:
Water quality, Pond water, Agricultural runoff, Urban discharge, Fertilizer release.
