A study of water quality index for the assessment of suitability of water for drinking in rural & urban areas of Mathura Distt. of U.P.
We present the physiochemical characteristics of the water sources of the rural and urban areas of the Mathura district based on computed water quality index (WQI). Water samples collected in different seasons from different sites of the Mathura District of Uttar Pradesh. The average temperature range is 3 – 26 ºC. Chloride was within the permissible limits. The annual average mean value of WQI for all sampling is 63.41 which indicated the poor quality of water. In summer and monsoon seasons, quality of water is more poor compared to the winter season.
