The object of this work was to study the quality of drinking water from rivers in selected area of Amravati district of Maharashtra, India.  This paper is intended to be a study concerning with surface water quality in various river affected by Ganapati Visarjan. While monitoring samples were collected in September 2015 from sampling sites before Ganapati Visarjan and after Ganapati Visarjan to evaluate relative differences in Physicochemical properties of river water such as Turbidity, Silica, Hardness, COD, TDS, DO, Phosphate, Alkalinity, Sulphate, Ca2+, Mg2+, Cl-, etc. The results are compared with standards of World Health Organisation (WHO), United States Public Drinking water Standard (USPH) and Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR).

Keywords: Physico-chemical analysis of water, Hardness, COD, BOD, Maharashtra, ganapati Visarjan.
