Abstract:

Surajpur Lake is a prominent wetland site in National Capital Region, India, known for its rich avifaunal and aquatic biodiversity. The present study was carried out to analyse water quality and to check the relationship among various physicochemical parameters in both temporal and spatial scales from March 2012 to February 2013. The water samples were collected from five different locations on monthly basis. Standard methods were followed for the collection, sampling and analysis for 12 physicochemical parameters. The data were analyzed using PAST (version 2.15) software. One-way analysis of variance (Anova) was used to check the significance of difference among the blocks and months. Pearson linear correlation was used to check the relationship among various physicochemical parameters. The result indicates that the essential mineral nutrients are widely distributed and are within the normal range of water at various studied locations in the study area. There has no any pollution; no any organic waste is coming to the site. Nutrient levels are high in wetland habitat as wetlands have rich biomes and support high levels of biodiversity. The Anova indicates that there was no significant (p>0.05) difference was found in physical parameters, chemical parameters of water quality among the different blocks and months. The proper management of Surajpur wetland provides suitable habitat for conservation of aquatic biodiversity. The conservation implications are discussed in light of results.
