Hence this study is carried out to assess the quality of water in lake water samples . As the quality of water greatly affect the all forms of life , this attempt has made to asses and monitor the quality by studing physico-chemical properties of water. The lake water samples were collected from Rankala at Kolhapur and analysed every month throughout the year. So, we have studied levels of nitrate in lake water sample from Rankala , Kolhapur .
