COMPARISON OF PHYSICO-CHEMICAL AND BIOLOGICAL PARAMETERS OF VARIOUS WATER BODIES IN AND AROUND BHOPAL (M.P.)ANU, S.K. UPADHYAYA AND AVINASH BAJPAI
Present study was focused on the assessment and comparison of water quality of various water bodies in and around Bhopal. Five water bodies (Kolar dam, Halali dam, Upper lake, Shahpura lake and Lower lake) were selected on the basis of there different location and different uses. Upper lake, Lower lake and Shahpura lake are located in urban area whereas Kolar dam and Halali dam are located in rural areas. Upper lake and Kolar reservoir are the main source of potable water in Bhopal city while the Lower lake, Shahpura lake and Halali dam are mainly used for recreational and secondary purposes. All these five water resources are used for different purposes, so water pollution in these water bodies are caused by different sources. Water quality of all five water reservoirs was assessed for a period of one year during present study. The parameters like pH, Total hardness, Specific conductivity and MPN of coliforms were studied during the study.
