It is well known that clean water is absolutely
essential for several purposes for healthy living.
The river Yamuna is subjected to multiple uses
for community water supply, irrigation, industrial
water supply, bathing, and disposal of sewage
and industrial effluents. It is an only natural resource for sustaining all forms of life in Delhi, but
perennial increase of population and urban activities in Delhi are placing tremendous pressures
and demands on this natural resource. There is
a heavy pressure of water supply and sanitation
on river Yamuna in Delhi. The chemistry of river
waters is dictated by supply of various elements
from both natural and anthropogenic sources
(Krishnaswami and Singh 2005). Rainfall plays an
active role for changing the water quality of the
river Yamuna. The climate of the Delhi region
is semiarid type with three defined seasons, e.g.,
winter, summer, and monsoon. The annual average temperature recorded in Delhi is usually
between 31.5

C based on records over the period
