At the present day the world is mainly focused on the depletion of the atmospheric ozone layer by environmental pollution. Environmental pollution is unfavorable alteration of our surroundings. The water is most important resource and one of the universal solvent, it is used by living organisms. The major source of water is mainly oceans, rivers, lakes, ponds and makes 65% of human body. The water is using for daily activities and also used for several industries may causes water pollution. In present study, an extensive investigation of physico-chemical parameters of water samples of river Musi located in Hyderabad was carried out. For this area sampling sites were selected along the river Musi in and around Hyderabad on affected areas like Himayath Sagar-1, Langer House-2, Govt. City college-3, Nagole-4 and Peerjadiguda-5 (Ground water). Water samples were collected during a month of February 2016. The observed values of different parameters such as Colour, Odour, pH, EC, TDS, Turbidity, CO3, HCO3, Cl, F, NO3, SO4, Na, K, Ca, Mg, TH, BOD and COD of samples were indentified in different locations in and around Hyderabad city.
