A preliminary survey was carried out in which water quality parameters of River Swat locally called River Khiali was determine that flows through district Charsadda, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, during the year 2017 (March to July). During this study the mean values recorded for water quality parameters were air temperature 33.6°C, water temperature 23.2°C, rate of flow of water 0.594, TDS 146 mg/l, TSS 119.4, depth 2.46,pH 7.32, and alkalinity 89.4 mg/l. All these values were within the limits prescribed by the standard methods for the examination of water, sewage and industrial wastes.
