    Abstract :

    Self purification is the process in which balance restoration of the aquatic environment takes place through simultaneous participation or in some sequence of the physical and chemical factors, biological, hydraulics and morphological characteristics of the river. Guwahati is a growing city and the mighty Brahmaputra and its tributaries form the lifelines of the people residing in this region of the country. Rapid urbanization and population growth have led to the exploitation of the city’s water resources, thus polluting the rivulets and streams running through it. In this project, an attempt has been made to study the characteristics of the Bahini-Bharalu river, which is one of the major rivulets of Guwahati. Various laboratory tests are carried out on the river water samples to establish the self-purification phenomenon of this running water that finally falls into the Brahmaputra.
