S.Y.S. Singbal, S.P. Fondekar, C.V.G. Reddy


The present study was carried out from September 1973 to January 1975 at two stations in Velsao Bay where the industrial effluents from Zuari Agro Chemicals are discharged. The chemical composition of water in Velsao Bay showed high nutrient concentrations. The total arsenic concentration also showed very high values, which might be due to the influence of the effluent discharge from the fertilizer factory. The results are discussed in the context of monitoring the quality of inshore waters of Goa (India)
