Water pollution is the burning issue all over the world. The water resources around the world are being polluted due to multiple anthropogenic activities such as uncontrolled population growth, urbanization, industrialization and chemical intensive agriculture. The water body under investigation is Lower Lake of Bhopal, (M.P.), India. The water quality of Lower Lake is depleted to large extent as it receives huge amount of sewage by the nallas joining to it from various parts of the city. So for the conservation of lake various aeration units i.e. moving fountain, ozonizer and moving fountain along with ozonizer were fixed in the Lower lake. The physiochemical parameters like dissolved oxygen (DO), pH, chemical oxygen demand (COD) and biochemical oxygen demand (BOD) were examined to evaluate the performance efficiency of the aeration unit.
