ABSTRACT

 

Surha Tal is natural lake fed by the river Ganga, back water located in Ballia district, Uttar Pradesh, India have been studied to project its water quality with respect to different pollution sensitive parameters i.e. organic pollutants–BOD, DO, COD, inorganic pollutants, electric conductivity, turbidity, pH, total alkalinity, chloride, total hardness etc. Most of them were found well within the prescribed standard for drinking water (BIS 10500:1991) during the study period i.e. April 2006 - March 2008. Although it is well within the prescribed limit but concentration inclined towards the higher side. The study inferred that the water quality of Surha Tal is still free from any kind of pollutants, must be due to its higher assimilative capacity. It also indicates the higher potential for pisiculture and drinking water sources (after disinfection) for the nearby villages which may ultimately improve the economic condition of the surrounding habitation.
