Abstract:

In the global context water pollution is considered as a major issues pertaining to its pollution level from the anthropogenic activities. In this scenario the conservation strategies plays an important role in the conservation of water bodies as well as water quality. The quality of natural water in rivers, lakes and reservoirs and below the ground surface depends on a number of interrelated factors. Water has the ability to react with the minerals that occur in the soil and rocks and to dissolve a wide range of materials, so that its natural state is never pure. It always contains a variety of soluble inorganic, soluble organic and organic compounds. In addition to these, water can carry large amounts of insoluble materials that are held in suspension. Both the amounts and type of impurities found in natural water vary from place to place and by time of year and depends on a number of factors. In order to examine and evaluate the quality of Cauvery River, water samples were collected from different locations of the river basin. The results showed that the Cauvery river still in the purest water quality condition. Many research studies shown the water quality of the Cauvery River have become pollute and near to pollute, but in the present study it clearly indicates that the Cauvery river water sustains the normal quality form in the sampling location during the study period. It was observed that the impact and entering of human activity was very less in the sampling location of Kodagu District, India.
