Abstract

Water quality information in aquatic ecosystem is crucial in setting up guideline for resource management. The biota in the surface water is governed entirely by various environmental conditions that determine the selection of species as the physiological performance of the individual organisms. This study explores the water quality status and pollution sources in Sur Sarovar (Keetham) Lake, Agra (Uttar Pradesh), water quality parameters analyze of five sampling zone was done from water samples collected monthly from September 2014 to July 2015. The primary production of organic matter, in the form of phytoplankton and macrophytes is more intense in Sur Sarovar (Keetham) Lake. In contrast to the chemical quality of water bodies, which can be measured by suitable analytical methods, biological quality is a combination of both qualitative and quantitative characterization. The present piece of research work is initiated on pollution status at Sur Sarovar (Keetham) Lake by interference and increase in the population of phytoplankton and microbe. We were selected keys physico chemical parameters for analysis like, temperature 19.50 to 38.00 °C, pH 7.39±0.04 to 8.21±0.06, dissolve oxygen 5.90 ± 0.55 mg/L to 6.48 ± 0.87 mg/L, alkalinity 93.73 ± 5.09 mg/L to 124.27 ± 5.05 mg/L, hardness 119.33 ± 9.06 mg/L to 138.93 ± 8.07 mg/L, ammonia 0.52± 0.03 mg/L to 0.64 ± 0.032 mg/L, nitrate 0.71 ± 0.02 mg/L to 1.79 ± 0.02 mg/L, nitrite 0.21 ± 0.01 to 0.47 ± 0.02 mg/L, phosphate 0.22 ± 0.03 mg/L to 0.36 ± 0.05 mg/L and heavy metal concentration like Zn 0.023 ± 0.00 mg/L to 0.27 ± 0.00 mg/ L, Cr 0.022 ± 0.00 to 0.036 ± 0.00 mg/L , Cd 0.002 ± 0.00 mg/L to 0.010 ± 0.00 mg/L, Pb 0.013 ± 0.00 mg/L to 0.033 ± 0.00 mg/L, Hg 0.015 ± 0.00 to 0.02 ± 0.00 mg/L in the water were undertaken.
