Paradeep is a Port Town in the coastal region of Odisha with a number of industries. Paradeep Phosphates Limited is an important industry in this area producing a number of agrochemicals along with lot of effluents throughout the year. The accumulated effluents bring about changes in the various water quality parameters. The study of surface water quality at the vicinity of Paradeep Phosphates Limited throughout the year 2015 (during monsoon, pre-monsoon and post- monsoon period) reveals that all the water quality parameters specially pH and fluoride content are much above the standard values prescribed by ISO 10500 which gradually approach towards standard value with an increase in distance from the industry. The surface water up to a distance of 03 km from PPL is not suitable for living organisms.
