The present study was designed to assess the Physicochemical parameters and the purpose of immunological variation and analysis of physicochemical parameters of freshwater bodies of District Surab River, i.e. (Surab city   Hajeeka, and Gurgut).  The collection of water samples was started from October 2019 to October 2020. The physicochemical parameters, i.e., Temperature, Turbidity, pH, DO2, Salinity, TDS, Conductivity, BOD of analysis of water, were enumerated,noticed and observed  no significant variation was recorded by  Jenway Model No. 3305  Finally concluded that water of three different stations of district Surab was found to be suitable for drinking, irrigation and fisheries management purposes.
