Abstract:In the Kamle District of Arunachal Pradesh, rapid constructions, road cutting, excavation, and indiscriminate use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides in agriculture practices are causing a variety of pollution in the aquatic environment, resulting in deterioration of water quality and depletion of aquatic biota. Humans contract water-borne infections such as typhoid and diarrhea as a result of drinking this contaminated water. As a result, it is required to monitor water quality at regular intervals to evaluate if it is suitable for human consumption or other uses such as irrigation, industry, and so on. The results of investigations on various water quality indicators from various water sources in Kamle District, Arunachal Pradesh, are described in this study paper for both the post-monsoon and pre-monsoon periods. pH, temperature, dissolved oxygen, turbidity, total dissolved solids, nitrate, and phosphate, among other physical and chemical water parameters, were tested and researched. The National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) technique was then used to calculate the water quality index. Based on these data, the water from different sources is classified as very bad, bad, medium, good, and excellent. Overall, the quality of water indicates good status as per the study.
