In the present work, we reported fifteen water samples that were collected from selected locations in the study area of Poonch River. All water samples were collected and labelled in polythene bottles at the sites where water depth was 1 meter. The river Poonch flows through Indian occupied Kashmir and Jammu and Kashmir in Pakistan. The collected samples were tested for major physical and chemical water suitability parameters such as pH, electrical conductivity total dissolved solids, total alkalinity total hardness chlorides, major metals and heavy metals standard. The aforementioned analysis of samples was reported by methods such as conductometery, potentiometery and atomic absorption spectrometry.
