Water pollution is the major source of environmental degradation. Industrialization and wide range of human activities have demanded for good quality water while pollution has increased day by day. Yamuna River is the most important river of India originating from Himalaya. The status of Yamuna River water is very much useful as it determine physiological life cycle of plants, animals and human. Yamuna River is most polluted river in north India. Its water flow from Bandar Punch,Yamuna Nagar, Sonepat, Delhi, Gautam Buddh Nagar, Faridabad, Palwal, Aligarh, Mathura and Agra. In this study water sample were collected from three different sites of Yamuna River at Agra such as Kailash Temple, Poiya Ghat, Taj Mahal. The plant used for this study is Eichhornia crassipes and grown in contaminated Yamuna water with three different concentration of EDTA. The concentration of 1mg/l, 10 mg/l, and 100 mg/l were used in three replication for each concentration. The result shows that EDTA decreased the physicochemical parameters viz. pH, Electrical conductivity, TDS, Total hardness, Total Alkalinity, BOD, COD and increased the level of dissolved oxygen in all three sites.
