ABSTRACT

 

A Limnological study was carried out on Sakhya Sagar Lake Shivpuri (India) for a period of one year (2007). Sakhya Sagar Lake is one of the ancient water bodies of the town. Physico-chemical characteristics of Sakhya Sagar Lake were studied for a period of twelve months from January 2007 to December 2007. The present investigation is focused on the determination of water quality parameter such as Temperature, pH, DO, Chloride, Conductivity, TDS, Hardness, Carbonate, Bicarbonate, Calcium, Magnesium, Sodium, Potassium, Iron, Sulfates, Chloride, Nitrates and Fluoride. From the results obtained Sakhya Sagar Lake is polluted freshwater body due to the continuous discharge of municipal sewage and runoff. The pollution of lake becomes noticeable in the form of visible changes of the lake environment as well as water quality tests.
