Three stations were selected to a stretch of 65 km along the North bank of River Bhavani. The samples were collected tri-monthly between 9am -11am during the first week of July and October 2013 and January and April 2014. The analysis indicated that the water samples were found to process high BOD, COD, TDS and pH as well as lesser oxygen and EC.
