Physico-chemical analysis of two fresh water lakes near lakhani dist. Bhandara (m.s.)

G.C. Tichkule, Bakare S.S.


The present investigation was aimed to observe the physico-chemical status of two lakes viz Rengepar (Kotha) and Purkabodi, near Lakhani. The lakes are 24km towards East from district headquarter Bhandara and situated on both side of NH-6, India. The wild life sanctuary Nagzira and Koka are about 30 to 40 km from Lakhani. The study was carried out for a year from October 2013 to September 2014. Various physico-chemical parameters such as temperature, turbidity, electrical conductivity, PH, dissolved oxygen, free CO2, Biological Oxygen Demand and Chemical Oxygen Demand were analyzed by using standard methods. This paper highlights the condition of both lake waters throughout the year with respect to the parameters mentioned above.
