Water quality index assessment of Sarfa Dam, Shahdol district (M.P.) India
The aim of Present study is to estimate the WQI of a water body i.e. Sarfa dam in Shahdol (M.P.). The WQI of any water body is a single number that indicates the weighted average of selected parameters linked to water quality classes. It gives an indication of water quality of whole water body in form of single value of WQI. To determine WQI of Sarfa dam, study of physico-chemical parameters has been analysed such as pH, TDS, TSS, alkalinity, hardness, calcium, magnesium, sulphate, chloride, nitrate, BOD and DO. However WQI values of Sarfa dam reported as 173.038, 170.75 and 171.031 of pre-monsoon, rainy season and post monsoon respectively. It shows trend of change of WQI is almost similar and in pre-monsoon season dam is having less pollution as compare to post monsoon season. The WQI of present study reveals dam water is contaminated and not suitable for drinking purpose without giving treatment.
