Abstract
The present study deals with trophic status to assess water quality of three lakes in the Nagpur city and to assess the impacts of anthropogenic activities. Results indicated higher values of pH, conductivity, total dissolved solids, total hardness, alkalinity, chlorides and Sulphate. Results shows that water quality of goes Gandhi Sagar lake >Futala lake>Ambazari lake. Among three lakes, Gandhi Sagar Lake appears to be highly polluted having high values of physical and chemical parameters (alkalinity, conductivity, total dissolved solids, chloride, and sulphate). Gandhi Sagar and Futala lakes are polluted and eutrophic in nature because of discharge of sewage and other anthropogenic activity. Ambazari Lake show the starting of mesotrophic conditions. These study lakes require immediate attention to conserve the lake water quality, New insights are discussed into trophic interactions and potential lake restoration methods, especially since eutrophication is expected to increase in the future owing to economic development. Variety of possible strategies for restoration of lakes has also been discussed.
