The present study aimed to analyse the seasonal variations of physicochemical parameters of Talikatte lake and was carried out from June 2019 to May 2021. All season samples were collected from the sampling site. The various physicochemical parameters such as Air and Water Temperature, Turbidity, Electrical conductivity, Total solids, Total dissolved solids, Total suspended solids, Total alkalinity, Total hardness, pH, Free CO2, Dissolved Oxygen (DO), Biological oxygen demand (BOD), Chemical oxygen demand (COD), Calcium, Magnesium, Chloride, Phosphate and Nitrate were analysed. The correspondence matrix of different Physico-chemical parameters is measured and analyzed. There is a relationship between the ecologists and micro planners regarding the importance of the conservation of ponds as a sustainable source of water in rural communities. The water quality is significant for intake, farming, and aquaculture use.
