Studies on the Physico-Chemical Parameters and Heavy Metals Concentration at Four Different Stations in Kolavai Lake, Chengalpet, Tamilnadu

N Akila

Abstract


The physico-chemical properties and the concentration of certain heavy metals in four different stations of Kolavai lake Chengalpet was studied. The water samples from all the four locations appeared clear, no unpleasant odour, and the pH remained neutral. At station 2 the concentration of iron was highest 0.26 mg/l and the lowest concentration was 0.07 mg/l at station 4.Total hardness ranged from 168 mg/l to 234 mg/l respectively. The heavy metals concentration was only in trace amounts and does not cause any adverse effects, therefore making the water fit for drinking.
