Water is a precious commodity. Hydrobiology deals with the details of various forms of aquatic life such as algae Phytoplankton, zooplanktons, fishes and other groups of living organisms. Water resource is an essential ingredient for human survival. The availability of safe drinking water is important for proper growth of human being. The consumption and utilization of water resources raise some environmental issues. The major one is how far the quality of water used for domestic purpose is safe. Secondly, how the country\'s water resources will meet the demand of rapidly growing population. The first issue is a major environmental problem causing serious human suffering, as maximum percentage of water used for drinking and domestic purpose is unsafe for human consumption. The study of surface and ground water of the Indore city is integral to the present research, a comprehensive review of research works on such components in different parts of the world was essential.
