Liquid effluent from Bhilai Steel Plant (B.S.P.) Bhilai were analysed for physico-chemical variables, for seven continuous days, about 100 m upstream to the point of its joining a river. Some of the variables with higher mean values were nitrate-nitrogen (167.4 mg/l) ammonia-nitrogen (90.9 mg/l), sulfate (915.6 mg/l) and iron (364.8 mg/l) while variables like chloride (22.93 mg/l) nitrite nitrogen (4.29 mg/I) and phosphate (0.346 mg/l) exhibited comparatively lower concentrations. Ammonia concentration was beyond ISI permissible limit of 50 mg/l.
