Abstract: Analytical studies of some selected physicochemical parameter with metallic elements were made on the water bodies of Arpa river of Bilaspur Urban areas, Bilaspur Chhattisgarh. Water samples were collected from five different selected spot in the month of May’2017 of Premonsoon season. Temperature, pH, E.C, Turbidity, TDS and D.O were analyzed instantly at the sampling spot while T.S, TSS, TH, Total Alkalinity, BOD, COD, Cl−, F−, SO42−, NO3−, PO43−, Na, K, Ca, Mg and Fe by the standard method as per IS procedure. The statistical parameters like mean, SD, SE, %CV and WQI were systematically calculated. Around 70% of these parameters were above the maximum permissible limit of IS: 10500 and WHO standard of drinking water. The elevated values of these parameters are of great concern to public health when the water bodies are consumed by people without treatment.
