About the Cover

Water is one of the nature’s most important gifts to mankind that is very essential for the sustenance of life. Quality of water is an important criterion for evaluating the suitability of water for irrigation and drinking purposes. This study deals with the study of physico-chemical parameters of water in five different ponds situated in Changanacherry taluk of Kottayam district. The study was made in the monsoon season of 2013. The physico-chemical analysis was extensively carried out on each sample using known standard methods. The results of this analysis point out the fact that all the parameters were within permissible limits prescribed by BIS water standards for the five ponds except the Pulikkamala pond that got degraded due to the dumping of waste materials. The study reminds the need for conservation of the degraded fresh water ecosystems and their sustainable use that forms a part of our biodiversity (Ref: Divya S Rajan, Nisha S. Variations of physico-chemical parameters of five different ponds in Changanacherry taluk of Kottayam district. Spring, 2014, 4(5), 6-9).
