Quality of water is an important criterion for evaluating the suitability of water for drinking and irrigation. The influence of seasonal changes on the physico-chemical characteristics of water resources quality in the four zones of Mysore city has been investigated for a period of pre monsoon and post monsoon season during 2010-2011 with an objective to assess the water quality status in the study area and its potability. The water quality parameters considered in the present study were temperature, pH, electrical conductivity, total dissolved solids, acidity, alkalinity, total hardness, chloride, dissolved oxygen, biological oxygen demand, chemical oxygen demand, calcium, magnesium. The results are tabulated along with discussion. On comparing the results against drinking quality standards laid by World Health Organization (WHO), it was found that some of the water quality parameters were above the permissible limit and some were not.
