The present study was designed to demonstrate the monthly variations in heavy metals of Pykara lake for a period of two years from Jan 2013 to Dec 2014. Water samples were collected on monthly basis and analyzed for Copper (Copper), Zinc (Zinc), Manganese (Manganese), Nickel (Ni), Chromium (Cr), Aluminium (Al), Sodium (Na), Lithium (Li) and Potassium (K) also recorded. An attempt has been made to explain the effect of above stated heavy metals concentration due to seasonal changes on the ecosystem of Pykara lake. The result of the study states that overall water quality of the study sites remained within the safe limits throughout the study period.
