Abstract

The ecosystem and way of life in the area around Shahjahanpur, Uttar Pradesh, are greatly influenced by the River Garra, a tributary of the Gomati River. The objective of this study was to evaluate the river water's physico-chemical characteristics at many Shahjahanpur sampling locations in order to ascertain its quality and suitability for diverse uses. A thorough examination of variables like pH, temperature, and alkalinity was done. During the dry, cold, and wet seasons, water samples were taken from five distinct places along the Garra River in the Shahjahanpur area. The physico-chemical parameters were measured using standard analytical techniques, guaranteeing precise and trustworthy findings.

By examining important pH, temperature, and alkalinity factors, the study sheds light on the condition of this crucial aquatic habitat. The possible effects of the Garra River on biodiversity are covered in the report. The summer, winter, and rainy seasons differ greatly in terms of alkalinity, temperature, and pH. Upstream, the water had no color, but downstream, it turned brunette. The river's alkalinity varies from a minimum of 78 mg/l at Site D in the winter to a maximum of 219 mg/l at Site B in the summer. The pH of the river ranges from a minimum of 8.07 at Site D in the summer to a maximum of 8.53 at Site B. The river's temperature varies throughout the year, with a minimum of 8.3 0C at Site D during the winter and a maximum of 31.5 0C at Site B during the summer.
