The effect of anthropogenic activities on the surface water body of Taal Ratoi

Ajay Kumar Gautam, Abdullah

The water body of Mau district indicates symptoms of deterioration due to several factors. This analysis investigates the causes of Taal Ratoi water quality. Over the period of two years, a total of 12 water quality measures were examined (2019-2021). Along the length of Taal Ratoi, water samples were taken at ten distinct sampling sites. Water quality was found to be degraded during the months of June - October-January because of maximum agricultural activities. Total phosphorus, orthophosphate phosphorus showed higher concentrations in October and January at some sites. The concentrations of nitrate-nitrogen, as well as ammoniacal nitrogen, increased in January, whereas the level of dissolved oxygen declined, resulting in a degradation of water quality. Furthermore, the widespread use of fertilizers and pesticides within agriculture during the growing season contributes to Taal Ratoi’s declining water quality. Furthermore, the increasing use of fertilizers and pesticides in agriculture, and the flow of domestic sewage, are all contributing to the degrading of Taal Ratoi’s water quality.
