A Survey on Management of Upstream Land Use and its Impact on Downstream Water Quality Parameters

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


This paper introduces the various
upstream land use activities that are major contributors of downstream water pollution. The
proposed measures to reduce the pollution of downstream water bodies such as sustainable
agricultural activities, systematic land allocation and management are discussed in the paper. It presents the analysis of upstream land use against the water
quality parameters measured at different water management facilities to identify the most significant land use factors for optimization. Recommendations
on how to optimize land use allocation and formulate policies for the purpose of protecting downstream water bodies, as well as reducing the cost associated
with water purification, are mentioned.
