Painted Storks (Mycterialeucocephala) have been visiting Veerapuram for nearly hundred years with intermittent breaks. The main reason for non arrival of storks was due to lack of availability of food. These birds mainly feed on fish which are available in the tanks near the heronry. In the present study Assessment of water quality of Lakshmipuram tank, which is a foraging place for these storks, was made to know the impact of different parameters on fish growth and health. Water collected during 2010-11, 2011-12 and 2013-2014 were analyzed for the levels of Alkalinity, Silicates, Phosphates, Nitrates, Nitrites, Chlorides, COD, Turbidity, Sulphates, BOD and Salinity. The study gave significance as this water bodies is foraging place for Painted Stork (Mycterialeucocephala) which inhabit in a nearby Village, Veerapuram of Anantapuramu (D), A.P.
