For the section of the River Ravi from the entry point into Pakistan originating from India toRavi Siphon after Marala Ravi Link Canal joins, the river keeps a good water quality such as 2.8to 4.3 mg/L in BOD
, 4.8 to 11.5 mg/L in COD, and 20 to 40 mg/L in SS.

 Due to the discharge control at Thein Dam in India, the natural discharge from India is hardlyexpected in the River Ravi especially during the dry seasonLahore is located in the upstream most reach of the Ravi River and all the domestic, commercialand industrial wastewater generated in the almost entire Lahore with a population of 6.5 millionand 2,700 industries is discharged into the river without any treatment in 2008, whichsubstantially forms the biggest pollution source of its river basin.At present, the major downstream use of the River Ravi is for irrigation beyond theBallokiHeadworks. However, the population and economic activities in the immediate areasalong the river from Lahore to BallokiHeadworks (64 km) are affected in different degrees bypollution in the river. It is estimated that waste water (domestic and industrial) from Lahore willincrease significantly as a proportion of total flow in the river. In a one in twenty year minimummonthly flow, wastewater from Lahore accounted for about 47 percent of total flow in 1987,rising to about 68 percent in 2007.(
