Abstract : The present investigation deals with the distribution and monthly variation of certain physico-chemical parameters of river Ganga at Kanpur (U.P.) during the year (January-December, 2010) have been analyzed. The results are calculated on the basis of treated and untreated effluent in water. The research reveals that the black and brown colour of water, high sediments load and particulate matter a thick water sludge, high Turbidity and low DO, much quantity of organic or non living material to decompose high BOD etc. have destructed the ecosystem of river Ganga to such an extent that has become too much simplified. The water of river Ganga has reached to septic stage near Kanpur city.
