Physiochemical Analysis For Upstream Stretch Of River Tapi
Assessment of water quality can be defined as the analysis of physical, chemical and biological characteristics of
water. Water quality is considered to be a key contributor to both health and the state of disease for humans. The study was
carried out on the river Tapi at eight sampling sites on the upstream stretch of river Tapi. Water samples were analyzed for
various Physiochemical parameters. It was observed that the all physiochemical parameters were within the WHO guidelines
