The water quality has started to deteriorate due to change in landuses even in hilly areas. This necessitated to carry out investigation regarding status of water quality in the hilly region by assessing the seasonal water quality parameters namely like pH, turbidity, EC, TDS, DO, BOD, COD, Ca, Mg, chlorides, nitrates, heavy metals (Ar, Cd, Pb, Cr, Zn, Hg), total coliform under four different landuses categorised as agriculture, urban, peri-urban and forest at 24 representative locations in low hilly region.
