The main focus of this study is to assess the suitability of river water quality for drinking and irrigation purposes in vicinity of rural area of Karad Tahsil of Satara District of Maharashtra. The contamination of rivers, lakes, streams, and surface water by substances harmful to living things is nothing but water pollution. Water is necessary for the life on earth. Water plays an important role in domestic and industrial usage. The quality of drinking water is a powerful environmental determinant of health. Assessment of water quality of drinking water supplies has always been paramount in the field of environmental quality management. Assurance of drinking water safety is a foundation for the prevention and control of water borne diseases. The suitability of drinking water has many requisite potable conditions. Krishna River has a special significance and needs greater attention of all concerned since it is the only major source for domestic consumption. The various parameters for quality of Krishna river water are analyzed and these are compared to established standards. The obtained results indicate that the quality of water slightly deviate from the potable conditions at some stages. The analysis was carried out for the parameters like pH, DO, BOD, COD, Chlorides, Sulphate, Calcium, Magnesium and Hardness, etc.
