Abstract

Pamba River acts as a source for drinking, irrigation and is subjected to pollution loads. The application of QUAL2K model for a stretch of 20.63km of the river for prediction of water quality at Cherukole where a WSS is proposed is studied here. The effect of point source from dairy farm at Cherukole is analysed. Samplings done during the monsoon and post monsoon showed how the water quality changed along the entire stretch of the river. Post monsoon and pilgrimage season data was used for calibration and validation of the model. The results show that the values predicted by the model are in good agreement with the measured values in majority of the stations, and that the water quality at the proposed location of WSS is within standards.
