The effluents from City drainage play a vital role in toxicating the River water quality. Hence the present study was undertaken to characterize the physicochemical parameters and comparative study of water samples of Hasdeo River barrage near Seepat NTPC & Torva dam of Arpa River in Bilaspur city. Evaluation of physicochemical parameters was carried out to assess the quality of River water, each parameter was compared with the standard desirable limit of that parameter in drinking water as prescribed by different agencies. A systematic calculation was made to determine the values of the observed parameters were worked out. Suitable suggestions were made to improve the quality of River water of Bilaspur Region.
