Water Quality Monitoring


The WBPCB regularly monitors water quality of rivers, such as Hooghly, Damodar, Barakar and Rupnarayan by analysing the physico-chemical, bacteriological and biological parameters. Under the National Water Monitoring Programme (NWMP), the Board monitors the water quality of ninety seven (97) surface water bodies including ground water at areas with potential to have been impacted by industrial activity. The river water samples are collected every month from the surface water stations and every six monthly from ground water stations which are analyzed in six of the Board laboratories situated at Kolkata, Kankinada, Durgapur, Hooghly, Haldia and Dankuni. Details of the stations with frequencies are provided here.
