Water quality and pollution status of Narmada River’s Korni Tributary in Madhya Pradesh


Author(s): Mukesh Katakwar

Abstract: The physico-chemical characteristics of Korni river water in Pipariya Madhya Pradesh have been studied. The stretch of Korni river contained in the Hoshangabad district (located at 250 23’-260 52’N, 760 28’-790 15’ E) is extended up to 65 km downstream from Satpura hills (Chhindwara) to the confluence of the Korni with Narmada river, Machha. Two sampling stations viz., Station-Nandwara and Khaparkheda, were established for the collection of water samples during June, 2010 to July, 2011. The water quality parameters, namely transparency , turbidity, electrical conductivity, total dissolved solids, pH, dissolved oxygen, free carbon dioxide, total alkalinity, total hardness, chloride, nitrate, nitrite, sulphate, phosphate, silicate, biochemical oxygen demand, chemical oxygen demand, ammonia, sodium and potassium, reflects on the pristine nature of the river in Hoshangabad. On the basis of various parameters studied, the water quality analysis indicated that the river water in the Pipariya area is polluted and can serve as a bad habitat for many aquatic animals including endangered species with Narmada River.
