The Sindh River of Dabra, M.P, India, has significant monetary and conventional ties to the local people. The purpose of this study isto determine the water quality index of the Sindh River in Dabra town, M.P. The samples were taken from five different locations of Sindh River and analyzed for various physicochemical parameters like pH, Turbidity, EC, Total hardness, Alkalinity, Acidity, Chlorides, TDS, TSS, Dissolved Oxygen, BOD, COD, MPN, Sulphate, Nitrate and phosphate. The Water Quality Index (WQI) is used to analyze the environment of water in terms of pollutant load classification and class identification. The Water Quality index (WQI) result at every point shows that the water of the Sindh River at Dabra is unfit for consumption cause possibly due to excessive effluent discharge, home sewage and other human activities.

Keywords : Sindh River, Water Quality Index, Weighted Arithmetic Mean Method, Physico-chemical parameters.
