Abstract

The present study was conducted to access the physico-chemical parameters of fresh water body, Ovali lake of Thane district, Bhiwandi city, Maharashtra, India. Some of the important water quality parameters like temperature, pH, DO, BOD, COD, alkalinity, chloride, hardness, nitrates and phosphates were investigated for the period of one year(Feb 2019- Jan 2020). The results revealed remarkable seasonal changes in the water quality and were compared with international standards laid down by WHO, CPCB, BIS and CIFE.
