|Abstract:||Without improvement in the quality of Hindon r ! ver the on going clean up of Yamuna river and subsequently the Gani;:;.. river would not produce commensurate results. For realization of the need .11 is important, to study the HIndon river water quality In terms of various pollutional parameters. The river Hindon Is ephemeral upto about 130 km trom extreme upstream. A lot of work has been done in the upper part of Hindon basin. A significant study was also carried out in regard to fish and fisheries by Verma el al. (1980) during 1971-73. In the present study in the perinneal part of the river five sampling stations were selected. The period of study was Dec. 1993 to Feb. 1994. Sampling frequency was thrice a month 1st, 11th and 21st of each month. In the stretch of study (about 200 kms) from MaheshPur (MH) to Barnawa (BA), the dinSolved oxygen level is very low or almost zero, indicating higher pollutional loads. In the rest lower half stretch of the river the gradual decline In DOE) and COD values from about 35 to 3.5 mg/1 and 65 to 13 mg/l respectively were observed. DO was found shakply improving. It could be attributed to the dilution provided by Upper Ganga Canal water released through one or both the Jani Escape and Khatauli Escape.|
