Physico-ChemicalrnProfile of Three Freshwater Flood Plain Lakes of River Jhelum, Kashmir (India)


Mushtaq Ahmad Ganie, Muni Parveen, M. H. Balkhi

Kashmir valley lakes are facing a challengingrneffect of cultural eutrophication from the last few decades and it remains asrnthe main water quality management problems. The physicochemical parametres ofrnthree flood plain lakes of river Jhelum, kashmir were studied for a period ofrntwo years from March 2012 to February 2014. The three lakes differed in termsrnof their abiotic features, with Anchar presenting very high nutrient levelsrnfollowed by Wular and Manasbal. It has been observed that lake Manasbal is moderatelyrneutrophic while the largest freshwater lake of Asia, Wular is marching towardsrnhigh tropic nature as a result of heavy influx of silt load containingrnnutrients from the catchment area. Whereas, the semi-urban lake, Ancharrnoperating under tremendous anthropogenic pressures, pumping load ofrnautochthonus and allochthonus material leads to its rapid tropic evolution inrnthe form of eutrophication.
