The present study examines the water quality of Manchiryal town lake Adilabad district Andhra Pradesh, India. The water quality analysis during the academic year June 2013-May 2014. The water quality analysis helps to know the suitability of water for different purpose like. Agriculture, industrial and domestic uses etc. In this study period water samples were collected in early morning hours at 7-00am to 9-00am. The physico-chemical parameters were used to indication of water quality. In the study period 13 parameters were analysed to water quality of lake used by stranded method. They are atmosphere temperature, water temperature, pH, transparence, turbidity, TDS, TH, DO, BOD, COD, Cl, P, S. The lake surrounding devotional activities are main cause to pollution of this lake water quality. The main cause to pollution of this lake urbanization, industrialization, domestic uses, devotional activities and people interact with lake surroundings. That’s why plankton species low number/lit were recorded. Because domestic activities and sewage consult to the rainy season are main cause to pollution of this lake water.
