Degradation of water quality of Nainital Lake during last decade

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