Abstract: The present investigation was carried out to high-lights the comparative water quality status of two water bodies Varanda and Ankarsol ka Naka of district Durgapur. The Study was conducted during the post monsoon period. Limno-chemical parameters are important criteria for determining the suitability of water for fish production. Water quality was determined by various parameters like turbidity, water color, pH, alkalinity, hardness, calcium, nitrate, Fluoride DO, etc. On the basis of results of water quality parameters in general, reservoir, Akarsol ka Naka having much more dissolve oxygen 6.8 mg/l as compare to Varanda i. e. , 5.6 mg/l. it was also recorded that Akarsol ka Naka has significant low level of fluoride 0.05 mg/l as compare to Varanda 0.35 mg/l. Other parameters were also observed that Akarsol ka Naka showed low concentration of Calcium 28.0 mg/l as compare to 60.0 mg/l Varanda. There was no significant amount of Nitrate content found in both the water bodies. These water bodies are rain fed with some limited catchment area and water level exhibits fluctuations in season to season. Thus the present study indicates that the Ankarsol ka Naka reservoir is more productive for fish culture as compare to Varanda reservoir.
