Abstract

Nirmal Lake is about 50 kms. from Mumbai, situated in Nirmal village near Vasai town, Thane district, Maharashtra at 19 23 29 N and 72 46 57 E. Nirmal Lake comprises of 2 ponds namely Vimal and Malai that are separated by a tar-road for public use. The two ponds are inter-connected with each other by an internal drainage system. The lake waters are utilized for a variety of purposes including ritual ceremonies, domestic and agricultural purposes. Water serves many beneficial purposes- primarily drinking and others such as domestic, industrial, agricultural purposes, for stock and wild-life, propagation of aquatic life, aesthetic enjoyment etc. Regular monitoring of waters is of paramount importance as a relationship can be established between different parameters that can indicate the status of a habitat. The current investigations are carried out to analyze certain specific parameters required to establish and notify the quality and sustainability for varied purposes. Our observations suggest that by adopting and implementing modern scientific-cum-technological measures, the lake can be reconstituted for a variety of purposes.
