Water is essential resources for sustainable life and environment which we have always thorough to be available in abundance and free gift of nature. Trace elements were found in rarer form in surface water. The present study was undertaken to determine the trace elements from Manjara Dam. The total concentrations of zinc and iron were determined using UV spectroscopic method. The concentration of selected trace elements was evaluated from three sampling sites named S1, S2 and S3. The study was carried out for two years of 2009 2010 and 2010 - 2011. The observed values showed the variations especially during entire the research work.
