This paper presents the Physico-chemical characteristics of water of Ganda Nallaha of Kalpi City receiving waste waters of many small scale industries. The water samples were collected from two sites and were analyzed and compared with the Indian EPA standards. The average Temperature, pH. TSS, TDS, DO, BOD, COD, Nitrate, Sulphate and Chloride were 25.95 mg/l, 6.9 mg/l, 198.5 mg/l, 625 mg/l, 4.1 mg/l, 156.5 mg/l, 332.5 mg/l, 80.0 mg/l, 73.5 mg/l, 228.5 mg/l, respectively. The heavy metals like chromium, lead, nickel, copper, zinc and cadmium were also present in the water of Ganda Nallaha but within the permissible limit. The high BOD, COD and TSS contribute to the decrease in oxygen supply in the receiving water and increases organic pollutants. The acidic water should ensure that their waste effluents released into water bodies do not cause detrimental effects.
