Description :
At Conductivity of river water increases during the summer and decrease during winter season. High concentration of municipal wastes and domestic activities and less flow of river during summer is responsible for increase of ionic contents in water and conductivity. However, more flow of river in the rainy season and winter dilute the pollutants to some extent and lowers the ionic contents of water (Thomas et al., 2001). It is evident from the observations that, conductivity attains peak values in the months of summer. This may be due to higher chlorides and total dissolved solid contents in river water during summer. The data collected shows that, lower values of conductivity at station A in comparison with the other stations, since, there is no significant source of pollution. The reduced rate of decomposition activities
