The current research was conducted to explore the concentration of water quality of River Indus at Pattan site Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan. The chosen water quality parameters were Temp oC; pH; Dissolved Oxygen mg/l; Electrical Conductivity µs/cm; Total Alkalinity mg/l; Total Hardness mg/l; Chlorides mg/l and Total Dissolved Solids mg/l correspondingly. Some samples were analyzed on the fields like pH, Temperature, TDS, E.C and DO while Total Alkalinity mg/l; Total Hardness mg/l and Chlorides mg/l were examined by titration methods. Samplings were carried out on monthly bases. The results revealed that water quality parameters were consider suitable for irrigation, fish growth and survival.
