The objective of this study is to apply the WQI index to assess the quality of Luy river surface water flows through Binh Thuan province and propose solutions to improve surface water quality in accordance with the society economic development Binh Thuan. Quality of Luy river water most of the parameters in the upstream areas reach A2 column; QCVN 08-MT: 2015/BTNMT, except BOD5 and COD exceeding 1.07 - 2.83 times, while downstream only meets the level of B1 column. WQI values have large fluctuations in space and time, WQI in monitoring positions from 53 to 91 (June, 2018). How to manage and protect water resources both in quantity and quality, to ensure the society economic development with the protection of water resources . To solve this problem it is necessary to assess the needs of water use, identifying the factors likely to impact water resources, pollution assessment based on existing standards or models Vietnam and proposed environmental protection measures to ensure appropriate quality water for society economic development - Binh Thuan province. This paper focuses on assessing water quality Luy river from 2016 to present.
