In Bhopal under the Lake conservation and management programmes various activities are being implemented on Upper Lake to protect the Lake from further degradation, to restore the water quality including overall up gradation of these two Lakes. The various developmental activities that have been done may have its consequence on the ecological parameters of the Lakes. Thus considering the importance of these factors various relevant parameters such as Phytoplankton have been studied from 2013 & 2014 to assess the ecological status of Upper Lake, with respect to its pollution status so as to delineate the polluted and eco-sensitive zones for mitigative measurements if required.
