Hence, a biological approach is applied to detect the nature of pollution. In this study bioindicators present in the Red Hills Lake were identified. The study indicates the presence/ absence of a number of bioindicators provides an ideal information about environmental quality or status of pollution load of the Red Hills Lake.
