Abstract– Some of the physico-chemical and biological characteristics of Baraila Lake in Vaishali Bihar such as colour, odour, temperature, electrical conductivity (EC), total suspended solids (TSS), total dissolved matter (TDS), turbidity and pH, alkalinity, hardness, chloride, sulphate, nitrate, fluoride were investigated. Dissolved Oxygen (DO), Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD), Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD), iron, copper, lead and microbiological parameters such as total coliform and plantain were investigated. In the results of this study we have found that the lake water is slightly contaminated and not suitable for drinking purpose, but suitable for bathing, aquaculture and irrigation
