The heavy metals pollution is a big and most burning problem of India and others countries. The pollution of dam water mainly causes of heavy metals and some others local reason. The heavy metals parameters analyses in this study are Mn (Manganese), Ni (nickel), Cu (copper), Cd (cadmium), Cr (chromium), Fe (iron), Pb (lead), Hg (mercury) and Zn (Zinc). The present study was focused on assess the water quality of dam. The study of heavy metals were estimated in dam water for the session January to December 2013. In the present study result indicates that the Chilar and Lakhundar dam water quality is good and the metal ions were almost within the permissible limits.
