Abstract: Fresh water is necessary for healthy living. River water is used for various purposes such as drinking, bathing, irrigation etc. This natural resource is being polluted by indiscriminate disposal of sewage, industrial waste and human activities which affect quality of river water. Therefore, it is necessary for monitoring the water quality of river by analysis of various physicochemical parameters. The objective of study on the yearly variation and physico - chemical parameters of Sone river water at Koilwar site in Bihar, India. The variable data of samples are within prescribed limits as suggested by World Health Organisation and Indian Standard institute and BIS desirable limit for drinking, irrigation, bathing purpose. Yearly variation in physical and chemical parameters like pH, Electrical conductivity, Dissolved Oxygen, Biochemical Oxygen Demand, Chemical Oxygen Demand, Total Coliform, Fecal Coliform in water were analyzed for a period of year 2001 to 2014. The analysis of the water quality parameters of the Sone river clearly indicated high pollution load on the river water. To maintain the sound environment and healthy ecosystem of the river and the surrounding areas, proper management and monitoring of water quality of the river is needed.
