Water quality is the major factor controlling the healthy diseased states in the both humans and animals surface water quality an essential component of the natural environment and a matter of serious concern today, water quality for different uses according to its physical chemical, biological and organoleptic (Taste - related) properties, water quality as it directly impacts human consumption and health. The assessment of water quality has been made with the help of both Physiochemical and biological parameters for this study surface water samples and algal samples was collected at monthly intervals Godavari River (Triveni sanghamam) at Kaleshwaram. The various physiochemical parameters were analyzed by following standard procedures. The algae were estimated quantitatively and qualitatively, River water is alkaline, chlorides, total hardness, Phosphates, COD, BOD, organic matter was present in concentration where as dissolved oxygen was recorded in high concentration. In is river about 130 species belonging to Chlorophyceae, Cyanophyceae and Bacillariophyceae was recorded and identified Synedratabulata, Amphora ovalis, Achnanthes microcephala, Rhopdodia gibba, were dominant in the river. The water quality parameters like PH, Electric Conductivity, Dissolved oxygen, Total Sulphates, Total dissolved solids (TDS), Total suspended solides (TSS), BOD, COD and Heavy metals like Zink, Lead and Iron were analyzed for both the lakes for the period of August-2021 to December-2021. The lake water is not suitable for drinking and irrigation and fishery development.
