Degradation of water quality of Nainital Lake during last decade

, : Degradation of water quality of Nainital Lake during last decade. Indian Journal of Forestry 1995; 17(4): 313-316

The water quality of the famous Nainital lake in Uttar Pradesh is deteriorating due to exogenous addition of municipal and domestic waste rich in organic and inorganic substances, as a result of increased human settlement (+37% in last decade) on its catchment area, and the regular and frequent visits of innumerable tourists which have increased considerably over the last few years.
