Abstract : Pollution of water is responsible for a very large number of mortalities and incapacitations in the world. Two tributaries of this river, Nakatia and Deorania were selected to observe the effect of anthropogenic activities on their hydrobiological profile. Four sites were selected to observe the hydrobiological properties of rivers Nakatia and Deorania, Nakatia N1, N2, N3 and N4 and Deorania D1, D2, D3 and D4. Four parameters (temperature, pH, DO and BOD) were selected for hydrobiological estimations. The present investigation indicates that the pH, BOD and temperature increased whereas DO decreased at the polluted sites. N1 and D1 were the unpolluted sites and N2, N3, N4 and D2, D3 and D4 were the polluted sites as indicated by their hydrobiological profile. The study suggests that pollution caused by the industries and sewage in and around the city affect the water quality of Nakatia and Deorania.
Key Words : Nakatia, Deorania, Temperature, pH, DO and BOD
