Author(s): Som Shankar Dubey, Atresh Kumar Singh, Umesh Nath Tripathi

Water resources are equally important for natural ecosystem and human development. It is essential for agriculture, industry and human existence. All life on earth depends on water. Fresh water is a critical, finite, vulnerable, renewable natural resource on the earth and plays as important role in our living environment without it, life is impossible. More than 70% of the Earth's surface is covered with this simple molecule. Scientists estimate that the hydrosphere contains about 1.36 billion cubic kilometers of these substances of physicochemical parameters such as pH, colour, Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD), Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD), Total Suspended Solids (TSS), Total Dissolved Solids (TDS), and turbidity. The quality of water can be assessed by studying its physical and chemical characteristics. The present review paper describes about the importance of different parameters of water quality.
