GODAVARI RIVER WATER POLLUTION DUE TO THE INDSUTRIAL EFFLUENTS FROM M.I.D.C. NANDED, MAHARASHTRA, India
The present investigation deals with the study of COD Chemical content of Godavari river water due to impact of MIDC effluents. The water is greatly used for domestic agricultural and recreational purposes. The investigations were carried out for the period of two years during Feb.-98 to Jan.-2000. Chemical Oxygen Demand is the oxygen required by the organic substances in water systems to oxidize them by a strong oxidizing agent. It is an index of organic content of water. Chemical oxygen demand test can be used in finding out the toxic conditions and biologically resistant substances.
