Safety of drinking water is an important factor for health. The present study was aimed to access the health status of Upper Lake Bhopal in relation to water quality conservation and management. Water samples were collected from two different sites for various physiochemical, heavy metal and bacteriological analysis. The analyzed samples were compared with the standards given in BIS-10500 and WHO. The results showed high bacteriological contamination due to the sewage discharge from catchment areas. Regular monitoring and management of water quality is necessary to save the water from poor quality which becomes threat for human health and aquatic life especially for fish.
