Heavy metal pollution is a global problem. It has harmful effects on human health and aquatic organisms. At Gadrwara, the concentration and transport of copper, zinc and cadmium under high and low flow conditions of the Narmada River were investigated. A total of 35 surface water samples taken from the river were examined. Copper (Cu) was the most abundant heavy metal in the Narmada River, followed by zinc (Zn) and cadmium (Cd). Zinc concentrations were found to be low in both high and low flow conditions, while copper concentrations were found to be low in low flow conditions. Further research revealed that the chrome river had high conductivity and pH levels. The final conclusion of the study was that both the concentration of heavy metals and the throughput of the above mentioned NTPC Super Thermal Power Project Gadarwara are minimal.

Keywords : Narmada River, Industrial Tributary, Heavy Metal Pollution, Heavy Metal Transport.
