ABSTRACT
Water is a liquid at ambient conditions and it often co-exists on Earth with its solid state ice & gaseous state water vapors or steam. Water covers 70.9% of the earth's surface and is vital for all forms of life. Water on earth moves continually through a cycle of evaporation or transpiration, precipitation and runoff, ultimately reaching the sea. Water is an essential requisite for life for human beings, animals or plants. The present research work is to analyze the health of the water bodies of the two districts of West Bengal (Murshidabad and Birbhum) in order to make the people aware that consumption of polluted water may cause morbidity and mortality not only to them but to the ecosystem as a whole.
