Abstract: Sundarijal River supply drinking water in Kathmandu city, Nepal and to study the nitrate concentration, 10 different sample from different locations of the Sundarijal River was taken. The method for the removal of presence nitrate in River was tested using hydroxylamine hydrochloride dose at 25±20C with 35 minutes contact time. Samples was tested for different dose of hydroxylamine hydrochloride and reduction of nitrate increase with increasing hydroxylamine hydrochloride dosages, up to certain limit. That mean with 0.5g, 0.6g and 0.8g dosages of hydroxylamine hydrochloride, reduction of nitrate was not observed when tested with 10mg/L, 50mg/L and 100mg/L river water, orderly. This tested samples shows the feasibility of nitrate removal from River water, Sundarijal.
