Wagh B D, Jondhale A S, Chavan SP, Patil M T

The present study was conducted to assess the problem of organic pollution of Kotmara reservoir, Sangamner Taluka, Ahmednagar District, Maharashtra. Present investigation three different locations (K1, K2 and K3) were selected for collection of water algal samples. During the research work Palmer index, algal genus and algal species pollution index were employed to study the water quality of Kotmara reservoir. Palmer’s Algal Index showed that K3 and K2 sites in Kotmara reservoir have high organic pollution. The K1 site Palmer’s algal genus index showed moderate pollution, but Palmer’s algal species index was little organic pollution. The predominance of genera with tolerance to pollution were Oscillatoria, Euglena, Chlorella, Phormidium, Ankistodesmus, Scenedesmus, Synedra and Navicula.
