Objectifs
From the description given above it is evident that domestic sewage and effluents from sugar factories, distillery and small scale industrial units are probably the main source of pollution ofsurface (river) waters in the Panchaganga basin. The effluents from the sugar factories are used to irrigate the sugarcane and paddy fields. This has led to the pollution of ground water and soils ofthe area. Excess fertilizers used in the sugar fields are carried to the streams and contribute to their pollution.

The principal objectives of the present study are, therefore, to :5 i) evaluate the quality of surface (river) and groundwater during different seasons of the year, ii) establish patterns, if any, in variation of water quality with season, iii) ascertain the extent of pollution of waters and soil and identify the point and linear sources of pollution, iv) identify changes in water chemistry that can be attributed to rock-water or soil-water interactions, and v) recognise microbiological pollution caused by domestic sewage. In order to achieve these objectives, base maps were prepared .Com aerial photographs, sampling stations were established, water and soil samples collected perodically and these samples were analysed following standard techniques and procedures enumerated in the next section
