The South of Binh Duong province has undergone various economic activities and significantly contributed to the local budget, but has also posed adverse impacts on environment where the decrease in surface water quality is a vital of concern. To evaluate the change in surface water quality and carrying capacity of receiving water bodies in southern waterways of Binh Duong province (not mentioned in this work), the surface water quality data was recalled from 25 monitoring stations during 2012 – 2016 and sampled at 93 locations in the dry season of 2017. In the period of 2012 – 2016, the SWQ fluctuated from very poor to good level (WQI = 20 – 88). The sites of interest were the Chom Sao canal (RSG5), Bung Cu stream (RĐN2), and Thi Tinh river (RTT1) (WQI <7) with high concentrations of BOD5, COD, and coliform, etc. In the dry season of 2017, the SWQ was ranged from very poor to good level (WQI = 16 – 88). Some monitoring locations should be taken into consideration were STT2 in Thi Tinh River, MC25 in Cau Dinh stream, MC50 in Cat - Bung Biep stream, and MC91 in Cai stream due to high concentrations of SS, turbidity, NH4+-N, BOD5, COD, etc. Accordingly, it is necessary to continue studying and assessing the waste water generation, the carrying capacity of receiving water bodies in relation to the local socio-economic development plans, as a basic for local surface water management and the sustainable development.
