Abstract

Bhopal the capital of M.P is known as the city of lakes, owing to a large number of water bodies present in and around Bhopal. But they are grossly polluted by domestic raw sewage from the surrounding habitation, agricultural waste, and industrial wastes. Present study is focused on comparison of water quality of two water bodies mainly Kolar dam and Halali dam near Bhopal. Kolar reservoir is the main source of potable water in Bhopal city while Halali dam is mainly used for recreational and secondary purposes. This may lead to decrease in storage capacity of these water bodies. The water samples were taken from the identified sampling points of these water bodies to assess the water quality. Higher values of BOD, COD, Heavy metal (Cu) in Halali dam indicates the pollution level in Halali dam.
