Description:
The river Godavari is among the largest peninsular rivers and the third largest river in India. It is also one of the most sacred rivers in India. Nearly 50% of the total catchment area falls in Maharashtra, and MPCB conducts periodic monitoring of the water quality of river Godavari. EMC was engaged by MPCB for statistical analysis of water quality data of River Godavari. EMC used tools like univariate & bivariate analysis, trend power and direction analysis and Location Importance Index (LII) to identify long terms water quality trends, stations violating water quality standards, monitoring stations affected by anthropogenic pollution etc. EMC came out with clear recommendations regarding siting of stations, water quality monitoring frequency and monitoring parameters.
