Water is said to be one of the most important and useful natural resource present in the universe. As we all know that water is necessary for the existence of life on the earth for each and every living organism. Water should be safe, potable and free from any type of contamination before making the use of it. Water should be used for drinking, domestic, industrial and irrigation purposes etc. Therefore water quality should be checked before consumption for any purpose mentioned above. There are different guidelines available to check the water quality for different purposes and if found more or less than the prescribed limit an action should be taken to make it potable and safe. There are various national and international agencies which describes the quality of water in terms of water quality parameter. Water Quality Index generally describes the quality of water for each and every parameter and thus it also helpful in making the policies related to the safety of water. Water Quality Index therefore provides sufficient and meaningful information about water quality to general public and policy maker. Present work deals with the water quality of Sipur Lake at Indore district. The results obtain were then compared with relevant Standards. The results would be helpful in getting information about the lake water and necessary steps regarding the safety of water for future use in drinking domestic, industrial and irrigation purposes. These results would directly helpful in improving the quality of lake water and thus also helpful for the aquatic life present in the lake water and we also come to know that water of lake would be useful for any other purposes or not.
