The present study was made to assess the water quality of Ulsoor Lake, Bangalore, India before and after the monsoon season. To carry out the study, samples were collected from the lake before and after the commencement of Rains. Various parameters such as pH, Temperature, Electrical Conductivity(EC), Total dissolved solids(TDS), Total hardness(TH), Total alkalinity(TA), concentration of Ca2+ and Mg2+ ions etc were determined. These parameters were then compared with the WHO and ISI standards to draw the final conclusion on the quality of the lake water before and after the rainy season.
