ABSTRACT

................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

Bhandardara dam also  known as Wilson dam about 185 km away from Mumbai.is situated in Ahmednagar District, Maharashtra, India  190  53' 75'' N and 730 96' 74'' E. It is   the largest earthen dam in the country and amongst the oldest dams in Asia. Wilson Dam or Bhandardara Dam is at Bhandardara with a height of about   150 m. The dam is constructed to provide irrigation and drinking water to Ahmednagar region. Monitoring and Assessment of water has become environmental need due to contamination by mankind. One of the most unfortunate crisis of 21st  century is the constraints in the availability of safe and pure drinking water which is the basic resource of our life. Most of the fresh water bodies get contaminated due to heavy metals effluents.  The main threats to human health and animal biodiversity from heavy metals are associated with exposure to lead, cadmium, arsenic etc.  Present investigations are carried out to analyse certain specific heavy metals required to establish and notify the quality and sustainability for varied purposes. Our observations suggest the presence of certain heavy metals in these water samples with significant concentration of some elements at few sites.

 

Keywords: Bhandardara, Heavy metals, dam, lead, cadmium, arsenic.
