Physico-chemical Parameters Studies on Shiva Sagar Lake, Vikarabad, Telangana

Authors(2) :-T. Sreelakshmi, K. Shailaja

Shiva Sagar Lake which is also called as Shiva Reddy Peta cheruvu or Sir Vikar-ul-Umra is situated at Shiva Reddy Peta village near Vikarabad town in Ranga Reddy which is about 70 kilometers from Hyderabad. It spreads an area of around 93 hectares of land and it is 50-100 meters depth. The present paper deals mainly with the study of physico-chemical parameters in Shivasagar Lake. Detailed Physico-chemical characteristics of this lake were analyzed. The various physico-chemical parameters like Temperature, pH, carbonates, bicarbonates, chlorides, Total hardness, calcium, Magnesium, Dissolved oxygen, , Nitrates, Nitrites, Phosphates and sulphates were analysed. The values of Physico-chemical parameters which were found in the lake always below the drinking water quality standards. Therefore, it can be concluded that the water of the Lake is fit for consumption according to drinking water quality standards (BIS, 2003).
