ABSTRACT


We live on a water dominated planet, surrounded inside and out with water. Water not a very complicated substance chemically, but its unique physical and chemical properties are responsible for the existence of life on this planet. The properties of water provide the frame work, parts and methods for interacting with living processes. Due to the open nature of the water bodies, a constant exchange of matter and energy goes on between the aquatic ecosystem and its surroundings, thus making water quality a dynamic factor. Lakes are the most important components of Global Water Cycle and have assumed greater significance in human survival. Anthropogenic activities add pollutants to the water body in the form of organic and inorganic waste which bring about eutrophication. An attempt has to be made to evaluate the problems having direct bearing on the limnological profile and to suggest measures to be undertaken to improve the status of the lake and conserve it for the future generations. 


Key Words: Ecosystem, eutrophication, anthropogenic, pollutants, limnological profile.
