The Hussain Sagar was actually developed by the early Nizams, for depicting the glory of Hyderabad. The source of the heavy metal pollution is leakage from overloaded sewers draining the industrial belt which run in to this channel. Contamination levels of lead Pb and cadmium Cd in muscles, liver and kidney of 50 randomly selected, freshly slaughtered cattle in Ogun State, Nigeria were assessed using an official procedure and atomic absorption spectrophotometry. The physical parameters included were temperature, turbidity and chemical parameters included were pH, temperature, alkalinity, dissolved oxygen, total hardness and nitrate, phosphate and sulphate. The metal bioaccumulation in C.

The eggs were incubated at the 65 per cent relative humidity and 38. Mean Cd concentrations were 0. We will be happy to correct, edit, limit, or delete your personal data at your request, provided that no statutory storage requirements are in conflict, or forward them to another responsible office. Dendrogram resulting from cluster analysis grouped the sampling sites into 3 statistically significant clusters based on the spatial similarities in the Lake water characteristics. Development of eco-ethics is the key for long-term marine survival. One such lake is the 450-year-old Hussain Sagar Lake in Hyderabad. Water contamination with heavy metals has been reported Schumacher et al.
Nature has been its main victim since time immemorial. The study deals with physico-chemical properties of Shivaji University lakes of Kolhapur city and its impact on phytoplankton population. I am thankful to Head of the Department and Dr. We have no control over the accuracy, legality, legitimacy, validity or reliability of such information on the Site, which may also include technical inaccuracies or typographical errors. The contanimants described above come from a number of sources including storm sewers, spills, landfills and can enter Lake Huron via variety of methods including atmospheric deposition,. Toxic effects of cadmium Cd were examined on a cadmium-resistant strain of Aspergillus foetidus isolated from wastewater. Then leaf subsides to leaf So Eden sank to grief So dawn goes down to day Nothing gold can stay.
Measurements included 1 temperature profiles at multiple lake sites for ten years, 2 near-surface temperatures at one end of the lake for sixteen years, including irregular occurrences of upwelling events, 3 timing and magnitude of seiche activity at multiple depths for two years, and 4 transport of a conservative passive tracer. Explanations for some of the variations are given in the paper.

Bhindawas Lake is an important resource for India relishing protected status since 1986. In Faisalabad city, water contamination due to heavy metals was increasing day by day because of infiltration of drains which were getting untreated waste material from nearby industries. Even if it takes a few more years, the restoration of all the polluted lakes will usher in multiple benefits to Hyderabad citizens.
The bottom sediments from the stations around the Lake were also analyzed, the values being expressed in mg kg-1. According to Srikanth et al 2004 , human activities such as mining, industralisation, and the use of agricultural pesticides coupled with natural activities has led to increased levels of heavy metal pollution in the ecosystem. It is a mean act by the educated Hyderabadis. The importance of quality control and differentiation according to speciation will also be stressed. The company is committed to keep the plant but at the basis on the cost limit set. The condition of the lake went from bad to worse due to idol immersion after the devotees bid adieu to Goddess Durga.
From the final map, the trophic level of the entire lake was characterized as eutrophic or more in all seasons studied during the year. The water samples were collected before and after the immersion of idols and were analyzed for various parameters. The encroachment it got was unnoticed until it reached epidemic levels. Man was created to appreciate nature, not destroy it. The report suggests that this is due to chemical laden sediments at the bottom of the lake, and a reduction in oxygen content in the water. One of the most important environmental issues today is ground water contamination. Man is a selfish animal.
In the recent past attempts were made to study water chemistry and heavy metal impact in the water and sediment of Hussain Sagar take Khan 1983, Khan and Seenayya 1985, Prahtad and Seenayya 1987. As if we the beholders of life are engaged in some cruel matricide. The immersion of these clay Ganeshas is much healthier to the environment. Writing for the , Syed Akbar reported that the lake's 'Putrefaction', which is the process of decay of organic matter, begins around April with stench rising in the summer. These values are comparatively much higher than those in the water, while wide variations are shown to occur in the bottom sediments from one station to another. The Microcystis species was observed in Rajaram lake indicates the signs of eutrophication of lake, while species like Desmidium , observed from Music Department and Bhshabhavan lake were the indicator of better water quality. Waste water of the second biggest industrial and the third largest populated city Faisalabad was mostly discharged directly in small drains located within the city.
