Author(s): Alka Tangri

These observations are based on the study of the total sulphide concentration form different sampling points of river Pandu. With the tremendous unplanned increase in the rate of urban population and rapid industrialization the waste products of their sewage and industries often find their way in the immediate environment. It is now posing a serious ecological problem of pollution in the rivers and streams. The untreated or partially treated domestic sewage and industrial effluents are generally discharged directly into the natural waters such as rivers, streams, ponds and lakes etc. Such waters are poor in oxygen; thus, disturb the economy of nature and create problems of international importance.
