Abstract

The preliminary investigation of the present paper highlights Physico-chemical characteristics of Bogolu Cheruvu (Tank), Nellore District, Andhra Pradesh, India. The surviving water body is exploited due to domestic sewage prevailed by human activities. An immediate action is required to assess Physico-chemical parameters like Dissolved Oxygen (DO), Total Suspended Solids (TSS), Phosphate, Calcium Hardness, Temperature, Free CO2, pH, Sulphate, Total Solids (TS), Total Alkalinity (TA), Total Dissolved Solids (TDS), Carbonates, The resulted data is considered to find a conclusion about Physico-chemical parameters and the quality of water in Bogolu Cheruvu (Tank). Furthermore, the results revealed the urgency and immediate action required to restore the biological and Physico-chemical sources with feasible and immediate renovation and managing approaches in order to preserve, preserve, conserve and to avoid the natural disparity and disruption in hydro-biological and hydro-geo-chemical cycles, which affects the food web and food chain of the important pond ecosystem severely.
