Abstract: Assessment of physico-chemical parameters of water samples drawn from four different corners viz. east, south, west & north of standing water body of Kanjha Lake situated in Purnea district, Bihar, India were carried out during January to December 2013-2014. PCP parameters such as turbidity, temperature, transparency, pH, DCO2, DO2, nitrate and phosphate were analyzed. The results indicate that most of the parameters from all four corners of the water bodies were suitable for fisheries as well as other human need. Nevertheless, unmindful anthopogenic activities like bathing, washing, cattle sitting etc. have introduced some undesirable pollutants which may worsen the lake status in few years if conservation measures are not taken.
