Abstract: The present study was carried out for a period of two year from July 2015 to April 2017 to enumerate the various Physico-chemical parameters of Narmada River. Water samples were taken from sampling sites seasonally and were analyzed as per standard methods. Maxima of Conductivity, Orthophosphate, Turbidity, Chloride were recorded in monsoon and Maxima of Total Dissolved Solid (TDS), Dissolved Oxygen (DO) were observed during winter. Temperature was recorded maximum in summer and minimum in winter season. Total Hardness and Chloride were observed maximum in post monsoon. DO concentration was higher in winter and lower in summer. Narmada river water is the main source of drinking, Irrigation, fish culture and other important activities for central India. Hence the present investigation is consisting to observe the chemical and physical constituent of Narmada River water and the quality of water pollution status of river.
