Abstract

Water quality of Baitarani river system is monitored on the main river Baitarani starting from Jodaupto its tidal limit at Dhamra (after confluence of Brahmani river), on its tributaries like Kusei and Salandi rivers. For the CWQI evaluation, four critical variables such as pH, DO, BOD and TC are taken into consideration. Investigation into the CWQI score values, it has been observed that frequency of deviation of TC values as well as magnitude of deviation from the tolerance limit is the contributing factor towards the lowering of the water quality. Though there is no definite source of pollution in these monitoring stations, the instream activities are responsible for the occasional deviation of TC values beyond the tolerance limits.
