Abstract: River water pollution is one of the most important environmental issues faced by the villagers situated on the bank of Krishna River. Krishna River is the largest river in the Satara District of Maharashtra. On the bank of river small scale industries as well as sugar factories are located. The waste from the industries as well as surroundings localities is directly discarded into the river body. To evaluate the water quality of the river, seven sampling stations were selected and the analysis was done for the parameters like pH, DO, BOD, COD, Calcium, Magnesium, hardness, Chloride, Sulphate and Nitrate etc. The pollution status was investigated on the basis of obtained results of physical and chemical parameters of the water. During the analysis it is observed that, the variation in the results is due to human activity, discharge of waste water and agricultural run-off into the water body is the main sources responsible for the river water pollution.
