Seasonal Variation in Physico-Chemical Parameters of Surface Water and Ground Water of Singanallur Lake, A Rivulet from River Noyyal


The present study is carried out to assess the water quality parameters of both surface water and ground water of singanallur lake region a rivulet from river Noyyal. Parameters like pH, FC, DO, BOD, Turbidity, Total phosphates, Nitrates and Total dissolved solids are measured and compared for both summer and rainy season. Results revealed parameters varied to greater extent for surface water compared to ground water. So the surface water of singanallur region is highly polluted due to runoff from industries, domestic waste and agricultural lawns.
