The present study is aimed at evaluating the quality of Krishna river water before and after the â??Pushkaramâ?™ celebrations organized in and around Vijayawada, Andhra Pradesh, India during 11th to 24th August 2016. These celebrations generally involve activities that significantly pollute water. The study was carried out by collecting water samples before and after the period mentioned above at different locations where celebrations were organized. In order to analyze the samples, breakpoint chlorination technique was used apart from the determination of various quality parameters of water samples using both volumetric and instrumental methods of analysis. The study indicates that there is significant effect of the activities of pushkaram celebrations on the quality of water in spite of many measures taken by the concerned authorities.
