An attempt was made to assess the river water quality during pushkara i.e 12th to 23rd of August 2016. For this study water samples were collected from important and selected ghats of Krishna River where the maximum pilgrims took holy bath/pushkara snanam. Water samples were collected from the eight ghats during 12 days of pushkara and analysed in research laboratory for essential parameters like pH, electrical conductivity, total dissolved solids, dissolved oxygen, and total coliform bacteria. The results were compared with standards of CPCB. From the results it was found that the most of the parameters of Krishna river water are within the permissible limit of CPCB and all the water samples were found excess total coliform which can influence human health. This study suggests proper chlorination and monitoring hygienic conditions at pushkar ghats need to be managed by concerned authorities.
