Water quality review
Water quality analysis introduction
Safe water availability is a human right that sustains good health of human beings, but more than hundred millions of people on earth are denied of safe water. Thus water quality monitoring and assessment are key working components of UN Organizations, national and international governmental bodies and researchers. This paper attempts to monitor the water quality of Harmu River that passes through the Ranchi city India and is highly polluted due solid waste dumping and liquid wastewater discharges. Although the state of the river is very poor it is currently being used by low income group residents for small scale farming and bathing. Even though the state of the Water quality of the river is poor, governmental organizations are taking no effort to maintain the aesthetics of the river or stop the consumption of water from it. Thus we attempt to highlight the crucial case of the river by monitoring and assessing the water quality of Harmu river. Water samples were collected randomly from various locations throughout the length of river and were analyzed for 17 parameters.
Design and Analysis for Assessment of Water Quality
Limnology in Australia pp Cite as. Quality of surface waters is a relative concept expressed in terms of the variables physical, chemical and biological that are measured to meet objectives of the study designed to assess it. The comparisons that are made between variables are important rather than their absolute values. Studies on water quality usually yield diverse data types and the study design should allow for the association of these data. Standard guidelines for the measurement of chemical variables to assess water quality in Australia have been readily adopted from North America and Europe, but complete biological standards have not yet been formulated and accepted.
