An extensive survey is conducted into the physicochemical aspects with seasonal variation of the Nagavali river water at the vicinity of JK Paper mill near Jaykaypur in Rayagada district of Odisha. Pulp and paper industry play an important role in India. JK Paper mills Rayagada situated on the back of river Nagavali is one of the large scale paper mills producing high grade of quality papers. The effluent generated in this paper mill is subjected to various treatments by activated sludge process and discharged into river Nagavali. The river water influences the inhabitants of this area in many ways. The present work deals with a comparative study of the physicochemical characteristics of the water quality of Nagavali river on seasonal variation at the vicinity of Paper mill. Studies on different parameters such as pH, conductivity, hardness, DO,COD,TDS and TSS of the river water on seasonal variation reveals that there is significant fluctuation of these water quality parameters on seasonal variation.
