The surface water forms the lifeline of almost all the human activities. The water pollution, inflow of solid waste, dumping of garbage in the drains and eroded soil, silt deposited in the natural drainage are major threat to surface water. The studies focusing on the assessment of changes in the river hydrology, morphology and water quality. The methodology used in the study involved assessment of Ghaziabad district water quality from six different locations for a period of one year 2016-17 in monsoon, winter and summer seasons. The parameters observed are Temperature, pH, Turbidity, Total Hardness (T-H), Calcium Hardness.
