Preliminary Studies on Water Quality Assessment of Veeranna Cheruvu, Hasnapur, Mahabubnagar District, Telangana State, India

Authors(3) :-C. Nagaraju, A. V. Rajashekhar, A. Sunil Kumar

The present study was carried out on water quality of Veeranna Cheruvu, Mahaboobnagar district, Telangana State  during 2011-2012, 2012-2013 and 2013-2014. The water spread area of 76ha at Full Storage Level(FSL) 36ha at the Dead Storage Level (DSL).  and water is found slightly alkaline in nature. Water is useful for drinking, irrigation and fishing. Three sites were selected to study the physico-chemical parameters of water such as pH, Temperature, Dissolved Oxygen (DO), Total alkalnity, Total Hardness (TH),  chlorides (Cl-), nitrites (NO2-) , nitrates (NO3-) and phosphates (PO4-3)  and compared with standards of WHO and ISI. The results indicated that the water quality parameters were within the permissible limits of standards. The nutrient levels indicate that water is mesotrophic in nature. During the study period many water quality parameters were found minimum in monsoon and maximum in pre monsoon periods.
