It is important to maintain sustainability for our society and city. Kshipra river is the major source of drinking water for 27 % resident of Ujjain, Indore, Dewas. This needs to have kshipra water free of hazardous microbes, after fest of kumbh the water quality should be changed. Microbial study of kshipra river water will help to analyse portability strength. Direct plating with extended incubation periods have been shown to recover significant fractions of the dominant microbial groups in water sample. Kshipra is Holy river that originates from the Kakri-Badi (Indore) of M.P and flows across Ujjain city [23 1 8'N, 75 77'E] which is considered to be geographically, historically, geologically, astronomically and astrologically important. Water quality was assessed in terms of biochemical and microbiological parameters. Sampling Ram ghat were selected. Presence of Staphylococcus, Bacillus, Pseudomonas and E. coli indicated human activity or sewage input in water body. Microbial parameter was studied following standard protocols. It’s a need to develop sustainability measures for the Kshipra river, it is important to maintain sustainability for our society and city.
