Abstract


Water is a unique substance. Its liquid face predominates on the Earth. Water of Kolar reservoir was investigated to assess its water quality  status. Study reveals that physico – chemical characteristics of the reservoir water largely varied through change of season, degree of anthropogenic activities in and around ,the composition of runoff in the catchment area. Water samples were collected during winter and summer and analysed for various quality parameters with special reference to heavy metals e.g. Iron and Manganese.
