ABSTRACT
Water quality depends on natural conditions and land use in the watershed. The increased frequency andconcentration of diffuse pollution sources and contribute to timely make the use of water resources provided forthe receiver. While it is important to determine its water quality parameters and indicators by demonstrating thechemical, physical and biological characteristics of this. Crystal River, located in Jerome Miller (ES), receives alarge load of pollutants, given that the work done during the months from January to April 2010 assessed the pH,electrical conductivity, color, turbidity and fecal coliforms at five distinct points aiming evaluate the process ofpollution of this river. The results of the parameters analyzed did not provide an exact determination of thetrophic state of eutrophication in Crystal River, but is visible to the presence of factors such as high levels offecal coliform bacteria and high electrical conductivity values, that can confirm the presence of negative waterquality of that river.
