Water quality is closely linked to water use and to the state of economic development. Water pollution occurs when unwanted pollutants are discharged directly or indirectly into water bodies without adequate treatment to remove harmful compounds. Water pollution affects plants and organisms living in water bodies and also to the natural biological communities. The present study is to assess the quality of river Khan at Triveni, Ujjain. Khan River flows from Indore via Sanwer it reaches Ujjain and joins Kshipra at Triveni. There are several industries in Indore, which throw their effluents in the river and it receives untreated sewage, drainage, run off from farms from the villages which are situated at the bank of this river. Though Bhangarh treatment plant has been setup at Indore to treat river Khan, only 30% of the river is being treated while rest of the water is untreated. Hence this source has been rendered unsafe for human consumption. Samples were collected from two sampling stations in the month of November. Their physicochemical analysis indicates that river water is highly polluted, BOD, COD, turbidity and TDS values are very high indicating that the water body is not fit for use.
