  title={Pollution in Water of Kasardi River Flowing along Taloja Industrial Area of Mumbai , India},
  author={Ram S. Lokhande and Pravin U. Singare and Deepali S. Pimple},
The area of study selected in the present investigation was Kasardi River which receives heavy discharge of waste effluent from the nearby Taloja industrial belt which is one of the fastest developing industrial belt of Mumbai. The study was performed to investigate the concentration of toxic heavy metals like chromium (Cr), cadmium (Cd), nickel (Ni), zinc (Zn), copper (Cu), lead (Pb) and iron (Fe) in river. It was observed that concentration of most of these heavy metals were much higher than… CONTINUE READING
