Analytical studies of some selected physicochemical parameter with metallic elements were made on the surface water bodies of Tifra industrial areas Bilaspur Chhattisgarh. Water samples were collected from four different selected spots in May'2018 of Pre-monsoon season, were analyzed for physicochemical and heavy metal like Fe, Zn, Mn and Al by the standard method as per IS procedure. More than 70% of these parameters were above the permissible limit of BIS: 10500 and WHO standard of drinking water. The elevated values of these parameters are of great concern to public health. Removal of water pollutants has been done by preparing bio-adsorbents from local plant origin. Adsorption capacity of different adsorbents has been tested and compared for the removal of various pollutants. The changes in pH, colour, COD, TS, TDS, TSS, TA, TH, Chloride, Fluoride, Sulphate, Nitrate, Phosphate, Ca, Mg, Na, K and heavy metals e.g., Cu, Zn, Fe, Al etc. have been observed
