Abstract:

Water is a natural resource for the survival of all existing organisms. The Mullaiperiyar River is one of the exceptional rivers of South India. The present study was mainly focused to investigate the physical and chemical analysis of Mullaiperiyar river water in Theni district, Tamilnadu, India. Water samples were collected from the upstream area (Near the Dam-Lower camp, Kullapagoundanpatty, Karunakkamuthan Patty), urban stretch area (Surlipatti, Uthamapalayam, Chinnamanur and Veerapandi) and downstream area (Theni-Aranmanaipudur, Vaigai Dam) during the period of during the period of six months from January to June 2015 for the analysis. The Physico-chemical parameters were analyzed by using APHA and WHO standard procedure. The observed values of different physical and chemical parameters like Temperature, pH, Total dissolved solids (TDS), Total hardness (TH), Total Alkalinity (TA), Calcium Hardness, Magnesium Hardness, Chloride, Nitrate, Nitrites, Dissolved oxygen (DO), Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD), Chemical oxygen demand (COD) was also performed. The present study alerts the inhabitant’s sanitation, health activities and environmental hygiene. A regularly observed and ensured the river water quality from additional unhygienic.
