ABSTRACT

Water Quality parameters such as pH; ammonia; nitrite; nitrate; alkalinity; CO2 ; salinity; Dissolved Oxygen (D.O) and temperature were monitored bimonthly from April to October in 2021; which is the wet season of the region. The results showed that pH was 6.5-7; ammonia 0.0-1.5ppm; nitrite 0.05; nitrate 0.05-0.25ppm; alkalinity 36-85ppm; CO2 5-15ppm; salinity 7-20ppt; D.O 3.3-5.6ppm and temperature 26-30o C.
