Status of Water Quality of Powai Lake

Chhaya Mitter [3]


Abstract: Water supply has been a serious problem ever since people started living in towns and cities. Human activities near aquatic bodies bring changes in the quality of water. Improper management of water system may cause serious problem in availability of quality water. Powai Lake is an artificial lake situated in the heart of Mumbai and was built by British rulers in 1891. The city is over populated, and demand for potable water is increasing day by day. Present investigation is focused on various physicochemical parameters and the study of these parameters is useful to determine the quality of water. Analysis indicated that Powai Lake is highly polluted due domestic and industrial waste. Immediate plan of action for cleaning is necessary with other precautionary measures.
