Impact assessment of lead on water quality of River Ganga in West Bengal, India


Impact assessment of lead on water quality of River Ganga in West Bengal, India



Bulletin of Environmental Contamination and Toxicology 75(5): 1012-1019

Water and bottom sediment samples from river Ganga in the Bhagirathi-Hooghly stretch of West Bengal, India were analysed during 1993-98 to determine the presence of heavy metals for impact assessment on the river water quality. Results showed that Pb was detected in 74% of water samples and 63% of sediment samples in the wide range of concentration. The significant variation in values was observed due to the change in sampling location, season as well as over the years of sampling.
