Study on the physico-chemical properties of water samples of Mahi Reservoir, Sonpur (Saran), Bihar, India

Prashant Kumar & Rajan Kumar


From January to December 2021, measurements of the physico-chemical characteristics of water samples taken from the east, south, west, and north sides of the Sonpur (Saran)-based Mahi Reservoir were made. Analyses were done on PCP factors as turbidity, temperature, transparency, pH, DCO2, DO2, nitrate, and phosphate. The findings show that the majority of the parameters from all four corners of the water bodies were adequate for both domestic and aquatic life, including fish cultivation. Unfortunately, there have been some unfavourable pollutants brought on by anthopogenic activities, such as bathing, washing, etc., which could deteriorate the pond's condition in a few years if the proper actions are not taken.
