Assessment of water quality can be defined as the analysis of physical, chemical and biological characteristics of water. Water quality indices aim at giving a single value to the water quality of a source reducing great amount of parameters into a simpler expression and enabling easy interpretation of monitoring data. In this study, various water quality indices (WQI) used for assessing surface water quality are discussed. As different National and International Agencies involved in water… CONTINUE READING
