Shiv Sagar pond is situated at distance of 9 Km from Khajuraho railway station in south direction. The total catchments area of pond was 75x 102 square kilometer. Monitoring was performed on various occasions of mass bathing viz. Deepawali, Amavasya, Makar Sankranti, Maha Shivratri, etc. The parameters investigated were temperature, colour, odour, turbidity, transparency, pH, conductivity, total solids, dissolved solids, suspended solids, total hardness, calcium hardness, magnesium hardness, calcium , magnesium, chloride, sulphate, nitrate, DO, BOD, COD, and total coliform. Values of BOD, COD, and total coliform exceeded from their respective permissible limits prescribed by WHO, CPCB and BIS. High values of above parameters were noticed due to the religious offering of various goods i.e flowers, milk, wheat, rice, ghee, oil, flour, etc. in the pond by the large number of pilgrims or devotees. Except BOD, COD, and total coliform, values of all other parameters were found within their permissible limits.
