The Ghaziabad region is well known industrial zone of Northern India and have large number of distillation units, paper mills and stone crushing units. This paper throws light on the Physico Chemical characteristics of the river Harnandi between Baghapt and Greater Noida stretch. It was observed that heavy metal pollution increase when we move from Baghpat to Ghaziabad and decreases when we further move towards Greater Noida. Organic pollution and BOD level increased many folds than permissible limits in Ghaziabad. Concentration of inorganic ions gradually decreases from Baghpat to Greater Noida. Where population density is high, organic pollution dominates and where industries are more heavy metal and inorganic ion load is more. The results clearly indicates that industrial effluents and domestic waste causes severe pollution.
