LIMNOLOGICAL STUDY OF MORVAN DAM, NEEMUCH, MADHYA PRADESH, INDIARESHAM RAJPUT, MADHU SUDAN SHARMA, BHOOPENDRA KUMAR VERMA, VIPUL SHARMA AND SHEETALNARUKA
Morvan dam is situated in the Jawad tehsil of Neemuch district, Madhya Pradesh. Dam is constructed on the Gambhiri tributary of the Chambal River. The main aim of the Dam is to provide water for the irrigation and drinking purpose for 26 villages of Neemach district. Present study is under taken to assess the limnological parameters of Morvan dam by observing different physico-chemical parameters such as air and water temperature, pH, total dissolved solids (TDS), transparency, dissolved oxygen, total hardness, total alkalinity, nitrate and phosphate during the years of 2010-2012. Average values of eight water quality parameters were taken to compute the Water Quality Index (WQI). In the present study an average value of WQI as 33.458 indicated that the water quality of dam was good. Further water quality parameters were under permissible limit per WHO, BIS and CPCB. Therefore, dam can be used to humans and domestic animals consumption as well as for fish production. Furthermore this dam requires continuous monitoring of water for future conservation and management.
