ABSTRACT

 

Kaliyasot Dam is second source of water supply for irrigational purpose of Bhopal (India). The project is commissioned in 1994. The Kaliyasot Dam water is polluted by man-made activities of various kinds i.e. sewage wastes and natural contaminants. The different trace elements has analysed to evaluate the water quality of Kaliyasot Dam, namely Cu, Fe, Mn, Ni, Zn, Pb and Cd, that contaminated in this reservoir. Trace elements have anlysed on Perkin Elmer Atomic absorption spectrophotometer (AAS) with air- acetylene flame. Water samples acidified up to pH 2.0 with nitric acid and then analysed on AAS. In the present study Cu, Fe, Mn, Ni, Zn, Pb and Cd elements ranged from 0.06-7.2, 0.018-0.62, 0.08-1.22, 0.06-0.98, 0.05-8.8, 0.14-0.60 and 0.08-3.70 ppm respectively, silt sediments has higher concentration of Trace elements. This study is very much relevant to water quality indices (WQI) and for further future planning.
The Kaliyasot Dam based on Kaliyasot River i.e. a tributary of river Betwa. Kaliyasot Dam is situated at Bhopal, it is situated at 23
