Now days, the quality of surface waters is a very sensitive issue. Due to urbanization and industrial bloom, India is facing the threat to water quality. Thus, there is a steep increase in generation of waste. This waste is not properly collected, treated, disposed; leading to water contamination. To assess water quality specifically heavy metals and its suitability of musi lake water sources for irrigation purpose. The samples were collected from the musi basin lake water sources and analyzed for various physico-chemical parameters like pH, Turbidity, Electrical Conductivity(EC), Total Dissolved Solids (TDS), Total Hardness (TH), Total Alkalinity (TA), Sodium (Na+), Calcium (Ca2+) and Magnesium (Mg2+), Boron. To assess the suitability of lake water sources for irrigation, various indices like Sodium Adsorption Ratio (SAR), Residual Sodium Carbonate (RSC) were calculated and the quality of the lake water sources were found with reference to BIS (IS11624-1986).
