Study of water samples at various sites in Southern Karnataka
Karnataka Engineering Research Station, Krishnarajasagara
 
Objectives
 
To develop a baseline knowledge of surface water quality in rivers of southern Karnataka.
  1. Water quality data was obtained from 14 sites on 11 rivers with monthly sampling from December 2009 to December 2011.
  2. Samples were analysed for the full set of 27 parameters advised under the HP project (including coliform).
 
Results and Recommendations
 
  1. A series of water quality indices were computed.
  2. In general rivers were relatively unpolluted although Faecal Coliform levels in the Taraka, Suvarnavathi and Lokapavani Rivers were consistently high. All rivers had evidence of some Faecal Coliform indicating human waste was entering the rivers.
