Analysis and Seasonal Variation of Physico-Chemical Parameters of Gawrala Lake and Vinjasan Lake of Bhadrawati, District-Chandrapur (M.S.), India.



The paper deals with the physico-chemical parameters of Gawrala lake and Vinjasan lake in Bhadrawati of Chandrapur district. Monthly changes in physical and chemical parameters such as Air temperature, Water temperature, Transparency, Conductivity, pH, Dissolved Oxygen, Free Carbon Dioxide, Alkalinity, Total Hardness, Calcium Hardness, Magnesium Hardness, Chloride, Biological Oxygen Demand, Chemical Oxygen Demand, Phosphate, Sulphate and Nitrate were analyzed for a period of two year from February 2013 to January 2015. In the present investigation, the higher value of carbon dioxide, total alkalinity, phosphate, sulphate and nitrate in Gawrala lake indicates its polluted nature. On the other hand, the lowest values of the above parameters in Vinjasan lake show its non-polluted nature.
