The Physico-chemical characteristics of Eastern zone of river Narmada were studied during 2014-15. The Eastern Zone spread out from Amarkantak origin point of River  Narmada  to Berman Ghat of Narsingpur. Seasonal variations were also recorded. The various physic-chemicals  parameters such as pH, turbidity, temperature, alkalinity, chloride, fluoride, DO, BOD, COD, total solid, nitrate and  sulphate were taken in to consideration to assess the Nermada River  water quality. The results of analysis were compared with the BIS: 2296. The results showed that most of the physico-chemical parameters were in the normal range and indicates healthy  quality of water and  provide good habitat for aquatic and endangered species.

Keywords:  Narmada River, Physico-chemical study, Pollution, Eastern zone, Aquatic organism.
