Present investigation attempts to study of seasonal variation in the physico-chemical properties status and effect of plant based coagulant, chemical coagulant and mixture of coagulants to water of Lodra Lake, Gandhi nagar, Gujarat. Selected parameters such as Water Temperature, Transparency, Turbidity, Total Dissolved Solids (TDS), pH, EC, Dissolved Oxygen (DO), BOD, COD, and Total Hardness (TH), Chlorides, Alkalinity, Phosphate and Nitrates, Sulphates, Florides were analyzed for a periods of one year from 1st July 2013 to 30th June 2014. The use of synthetic & natural coagulants like PAC, Lemon (Citrus lemonum) and mixture of PAC & Lemon (Citrus lemonum) showed better turbidity removal. All parameters were not within the permissible limits. The results indicate that the lake is polluted and cannot be used for domestic and Pisciculture.
