Ahmedabad Urban Development Authority (AUDA) proposes to undertake work for revival, development of catchments areas and beatification of few lakes under the present project. Of these; Ramol, Vastral, Singarva and Nikol lake's waters were analysed for cationic contaminations. The results values of the metals estimated through 4 lakes during monthly Analysis from January-2010 to December -2010. Their ranges of concentration were comparing to permissible limits of BIS. Calcium content of water samples from all localities were within the permissible limit of BIS except locality no.2 November-2010. Magnesium content of water samples from all localities were within the permissible limit of BIS except locality no.3 in March-2010. Sulphate contents of water samples from locality no.2 December-2010. Ammonia Content of water samples from locality no.4 July-2010, Phosphate content of water samples from all localities were within the permissible limit of BIS except locality no.1 and 2 in April-2010. The results suggested that water was suitable for drinking purposes. Nitrite content of water samples from all localities were within the permissible limit of BIS except locality no, 1 in November-2010. The results suggested that water was suitable for drinking purposes.
