Vinita R KashyapAbstract:
The aim of the current study was to gain a thorough knowledge on the trophic status of Bansagar reservoir. Variation in physico-chemical parameters of ambient water were assessed over a period of one year (January to December) on monthly basis in Bansagar reservoir. In the present study pH varied from 7.2-8.4 units, turbidity from 3-9 NTU, total dissolved solids from 116-158 mg/l, Specific conductivity from 176-242 mg//l, dissolved oxygen from 4.4-7.6 mg/l, Total hardness from 40-60 mg/l, total alkalinity from 102-134 mg/l, chloride from 10-20 mg/l, nitrate from 0.008-0.54 mg/l and Phosphate phosphorous from 0.0006-0.175 mg/l. The results indicated that the physico-chemical parameters of the water body were within the permissible limits and as such the water from the Bansagar reservoir can be used for drinking, and domestic purpose.Pages: 29-32 | Views: 63 | Downloads: 37Download Full Article: Click Here
