Abstract

Wetland is one of the most important ecosystems of the world. They have great potential for biomass production and capable for harvesting rich and diverse flora and fauna. The urbanization, industrialization and other developments lead to change in water quality of ponds. The present study was carried out to analyze the physicochemical parameters, of two ponds of Vadodara district of Gujarat state for a period of one year to know the quality of pond. All the parameters are within the permissible limits prescribed by Indian standards, however the hardness values for Alwa pond slightly higher than the prescribed limits. The sulphates values were reported higher in summer 287.73 mg/l at Limda and 172.08 mg/l at Alwa Pond. The major contributors of the decline in water quality of ponds reveal discharge of untreated domestic waste. The paper highlights the temporal changes observed in important parameters and their relation in overall ecology of the pond. The paper suggest strategies for conservation of ponds in near future.
