An industrial cluster area of ~706.85 Km2 of the district of Sambalpur-Jharsguda where in coalfired thermal power plants and other small water polluting plants are located. The impact of these water polluting plants of cluster area in the surrounding have been studied by evaluating the pH, conductivity, dissolved oxygen (DO), biological oxygen demand (BOD), chemical oxygen demand (COD), total dissolved solids (TDS), total hardness, alkalinity, total coliform (TC), faecal coliform (FC). Our finding on those parameters is that they decrease with respect to distance from Segment-I to Segment-II.
