Abstract

Kanjia Lake  spread over 75 hectares of area is popularly known as Nandankanan Lake  situated between 85° 48’ to 85° 50’ E longitudes and between 20° 23’ to 20° 25’ N latitudes. The study of various physicochemical parameters were carried out over a period of two years from Nov.2009- Oct.2011.Sampling of water for various physiochemical parameters from four different  sites  was carried out every month from 9.00 am to 12.00 pmThe analysis of physical and chemical parameters was carried out in the site and in the laboratory using standard method of APHA- AWWA-WEF,1999; Abbasi ,1998; and by using Systronics P-4 water analysis kit( E-Merck).Study revealed the seasonal changes in physic chemical parameters and the parameters are within the desirable limits as prescribed by BIS(1991) During the period of study air temperature, water temperature, water depth, Transparency,  pH , dissolved oxygen, conductivity ,  chlorides, nitrates, phosphates, total hardness, total alkalinity, turbidity, salinity and Total Dissolve Solids were determined.
