This research work deals with the study of the physico-chemical parameter of Kot Dam. Dam water samples were collected from Kot Dam, shakambari conservation reserve, Jhunjhunu district, Rajasthan (India) in winter season from November 2022 to December 2022. Samples were examined for physico-chemical parameters like pH, electrical conductivity (EC), dissolved oxygen (DO), Temperature, Salinity and total dissolved solids (TDS). pH ranged from 7.35 – 8.96, Electrical Conductivity ranged from 122.6 – 202.1 μmhos/cm, Dissolved oxygen ranged from 0.3 – 0.7 mg/l, Temperature ranged from 13.9 °C – 16 °C, Salinity ranged from 4.1 – 6.6 ppt, TDS ranged from 155.6 – 244.2 ppm. The result of the proposed study will establish some facts about the use of water for various purposes like domestic and agriculture. Hydrophytes are an essential link in the aquatic food chain, serving as food for microscopic animals called zooplankton.As a byproduct of photosynthesis, Phytodiversity also release oxygen into the water for use by fish and other aquatic animals. In this paper, an approach is proposed to estimate the physico-chemical parameters of Dam water, which are important factors in controlling eutrophication using modeling and exploration techniques. In Dam water Hydrophyte plant diversity are determined using a physico-chemical approach that provides an alternative method for estimating the diversity. The study revealed that a total of 26 species of hydrophytes belonging to 9 genera and 11 families were identified. Among these, Cyperaceae was the dominant family comprising 6 species, out of which, monocots were represented by 9 species belonging to 3 genera and 3 families; dicots represented by 14 species belonging to 11 genera.
Keywords:Hydrophytes, biological parameters, physico-chemical parameters, in situ testing.
