Evaluation of Hydrological Parameters and Phytoplankton Diversity of Moolikulam Pond in Tirunelveli, Tamilnadu

D. Amish Abragam [2] | P. Mathiarasi

Abstract: Water, the most abundant and wonderful natural resource, especially the fresh water become a precious commodity today and its quality is threatened by numerous sources of pollution. Water quality is affected directly or indirectly by physico-chemical parameters. Ponds are fresh water bodies, either naturally formed or constructed and one among the major components of wetlands. Ponds have been used since time immemorial as a traditional source of water supply in India. In addition to that ponds have multifaceted uses including domestic utility, irrigation, fishery and they possess valuable resources that offer splendid services to the society and functioning of the environment. Phytoplankton studies and monitoring are also useful for control of the physico-chemical and biological conditions of water. However, the pond water are polluted mainly due to discharged waste water from residential areas, sewage outlets, solid wastes, detergents, automobile oil wastes, fishing facilities and agricultural pesticides from farmlands and also the most threatened habitats like the other wetland habitats on earth and therefore require proper management for the remaining ponds. The present study aimed to that analyse the hydrological parameters and monitor the phytoplankton diversity in Moolikulam fresh water bond of Tirunelveli Dist. Tamil nadu India. So fresh water resources need special care and attention to make it available sustainably for the present and future generations.
