The present study was carried out to assess the water quality of River Hemavathi during pre-monsoon season. It is one of the major tributary of river Kaveri. The water samples were collected near a village Turuvekere at two different points. Sample S1 was collected from the populated area of the village and Sample S2 one km upstream. The various physico-chemical parameters studied were temperature, pH, conductivity, TDS, turbidity, hardness, alkalinity, concentration of Ca2+, Mg2+ and ClÃ¢ÂÂ ions etc. All these parameters were then compared with the WHO and ISI standards to draw the final conclusion on the quality of water of the river.
