Abstract:

The objective of the study is to reveal the seasonal variations in the wastewater quality with respect to heavy metal contamination. To get the extent of the heavy metals contamination, wastewater samples were collected from 5 different locations from in and around river Narmada during the Winter, Summer, Monsoon Rainy and Post- Monsoon seasons. The concentration of heavy metals, such as lead, copper, manganese, zinc, cadmium, irons and chromium were determined using Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer (AAS). The decreasing trend of metals in water were observed as Cu > Ni > Cr > Pb > Zn > Fe > Mn. The level of studied metals in water samples exceeded the safe limits of drinking water, indicated that water from this river would not safe for drinking and cooking. This study recommended the continuous monitoring of Cr, Mn, Ni, Zn, Cu, Fe and Pb in water. Narmada River should be assessing at times to study heavy metal as its hazards disturbs ecology.
