Bolinj ram Mandir Talao is situated in Bolinj, Near Virar Town, Palghar District, Maharashtra at 19° 28' 0'' N and 72° 47'60'' E. Talao water is used for various purposes like Ganpati Idol Immersion, ritual ceremony, washing, irrigations etc. Current study analysis the seasonal variations of various important Physico- Chemical parameters of Bolinj Ram Mandir Talao, Virar. Most of the parameters are Turbidity, pH, Carbonates and Bicarbonates, B.O.D., Sulphate, Hardness etc. Our observation suggest that Talao water is fairly contaminated by adopting and implementing modern scientific-cum-technological measures, the lake can bereconstituted for a variety of purposes.
