It has been observed that the Kharun River got polluted from many more sources which has been found nearby river, so river water got polluted in terms of BOD, chemical oxygen demand (COD), pH value, Alkalinity, toxic metals, DO etc. We have taken the water sample during three different season like Summer season (W1), Winter season (W2), Rainy season (W3) and we found that the river water cannot be used for other purposes like drinking etc. So it has been suggested to implant the sewage treatment plant (STP) nearby Kharun River so that we can maintain the water quality of river. Dinking the polluted water of river creates negative impact on health cause jaundice, typhoid. SO it is very necessary to keep River water clean. After the determination of water it was found that the total hardness of the water has been more affected. Similarly calcium ion and value of pH also found varied from their standard values. So it can be say the water of the Kharun river cannot be used without any treatment process.
