Abstract

This work deals with a comparative study of hydrology of three important lakes in Kerala, viz, Ashtamudi salt water lake, Sasthamcotta fresh water lake and Pookote fresh water lake using the available data. It is seen that all the water quality parameters lie within the limits of WHO standards in the case of the two fresh water bodies, while Ashtamudi salt water lake shows deviation. The parameters like conductivity, hardness, TDS and alkaline salts of salt water lake show variations when compared to fresh water lakes. Further comparing the water quality of the two fresh water bodies it is found that Pookote Lake maintains a better status. As the Sasthamcotta Lake is a drinking water source for thousands of people, special care should be taken to avert the bacterial contamination and pollution. Since the degradation of water quality of Sasthamcotta Lake is a serious threat to the society, proper management action plan and effective steps have to be implemented drastically.
