Abstract: Due to rapid growth of population, industrialization and agricultural practices most of our natural water resources get polluted. Disposal of untreated or partially treated industrial effluents or sewage into surface waters is one of the major environmental problems.
The present study was undertaken to know the variation in physicochemical properties of kotwal reservoir situated at Morena in Madhya Pradesh. Water samples were analyzed for various physical parameters like pH, temperature, colour, depth, transparency, and chemical parameters like DO, BOD, COD, phosphates, sulphates, chlorides, hardness, alkalinity, nitrate, conductivity and total dissolved solids. The result revealed that the condition of this reservoir in different month showed fluctuations in physico-chemical parameters.
