The present study was conducted to assess the impact of the micronutrients on water quality of the reservoir. The micronutrients have been increaseing in the Kaliasote reservoir in the last few years due to over uses of chemical fertilizers and pesticides in agriculture in surrounded catchment areas of the reservoir. There are many micronutrients present in the fertilizers such as Zn, Cu, Mo and Mn etc. The availability of micronutrients in a water body is largely governed by the characteristics of its catchment apart from the soil characteristics of the catchment area, the availability of nutrients also depends on the agricultural practices . The reservoir receives a large volume of water during monsoon months through number of inlet channels which ultimately increase the micronutrients availability in the reservoir . The study shows that the area joining to Near Bhadbhada have higher concentration of micronutrients than the reference sample station. © EM international. Source

The use of chemical fertilizers in the catchment area of the Hathaikheda Reservoir has increased manyfold. The residual impact of the chemical fertilizer as well as agriculture waste inflow in the lake considerably increased the water pollution problem. The residues of the chemical fertilizer reaching to the Hathaikheda Reservoir with storm water enriched the reservoir water with the loading of nutrients. The extra loading of the nutrient caused eutrophication that supports luxuriant growth of macrophytes. Several physicochemical parameters such as pH, conductivity, Dissolved Oxygen (DO), Biological Oxygen demand (BOD), Chemical Oxygen demand (COD), Nitrates, Phosphates and Potassium were analyzed. Comparison of water quality of Hathaikheda Reservoir Bhopal was carried out in the slight of assessment of impact of use of fertilizers in different areas. During the study high concentration of nutrients were observed in the areas where chemical fertilizer is being used in comparison to other sampling station. Source

Micronutrients play major role in determining the biological processes of a Lake ecosystem. The availability of micronutrients especially Zn, Cu, Mo and Mn in a water body is largely governed by the characteristics of its catchment Apart from the soil characteristics of the catchment area, the availability of nutrients also depend on the agricultural practices. The Upper Lake of Bhopal, which is known as the life line of the city has a mixed catchment consist both rural as well as urban. The lake receives a large volume of water during monsoon months through number of inlet channels which ultimately increases the nutrients availability in the lake. The present study was, therefore, conducted to assess the impact of the micronutrients on water quality of the lake. The study shows that the area adjoining to Gurabishan khedi have higher concentration of micronutrients than other place. Source
