Abstract :

Water is a basic requirement for life on Earth. The investigation of certain Physico-Chemical parameters of water samples plays a vital role in giving the detailed idea about water quality. The increased population and industrialization leads to deterioration of the environment as well as water resources. Present study was carried out to assess the some Physico-Chemical parameters of water samples from three urban Lakes (Siddheshwar Lake, Sambhaji Lake and Ekrukh Lake) of Solapur city, Maharashtra state, India in the period of January 2015 to December 2015. The parameters like pH, color, odor, temperature, Total dissolved solids, Dissolved oxygen, Free CO2 and Total hardness have been analyzed. The results were compared with the reports given by WHO. The study concluded that there is increasing in the values of parameters in water sample Sambhaji Lake and which is higher as compare with the Siddheshwar Lake and Ekrukh Lake indicating water pollution in Sambhaji Lake. Due to various ant
