Human beings are also facing the health impacts due to increased pollution. Environmental pollution has reached to such a stage that biological species are struggling for its existence. None of the spheres of earth remain untouched by pollution. Be it hydrosphere, lithosphere or atmosphere, each one is experiencing abnormal levels of pollution. Atmosphere is polluted the most. Major sources of atmospheric pollution are industrial emissions, vehicles, construction activities, mining, dust particles and other anthropogenic activities. With advancement in science and technology, human population has also increased dramatically. The present work has been carried out to create knowledge about quality and potability of the water From Salim Ali Lake Aurangabad. The parameters like pH, TDS, TH, Turbidity, Iron , fluoride, chloride, Sodium, Magnesium, Potassium, Sulphate and Nitrate, Calcium etc. were determined to evaluate the quality of water. The results were compared with the ISI and WHO.
