Present investigation was carried out for a period of eight months analyzing selected parameters at fortnightly intervals. The results obtained were found to be within the prescribed limits set by standard recommended bodies namely WHO and BIS, except for BOD (WHO, 2004) and total hardness (WHO-1984, 2004; BIS-1991, 2012). The observed values were tested from fisheries point of view also with the standards proposed by renowned scientists of the field and found to be well within the limits. Hence, it can be said that, water from this reservoir is fit for irrigation, agriculture, pisciculture, industrial, domestic purposes and with little treatment with respect to BOD and total hardness can even fit for drinking also.
