Pollutants can be classified into different categories based on their source of origin normally the pollutants of water contamination comes either by through wind erosion gully erosion along with the activities like surface runoff or agricultural runoff etc., whatever the reason of lake contamination as per the  current scenario of water availability there is an immediate  need to conserve water to a great extent for the sustainable development from the local to regional and national level. Lakes are considered as potential resources for both domestic and agricultural utilization, which will maintain surplus quantity of water irrespective of season but now a days the existence of water in the lakes is not happening due to the increased consumption levels of water for various activities of the water demand, rapid industrialization, unplanned urbanization and pesticide usage in the agricultural practices has lead to contamination of waters. By keeping in this view, the present study is carried out with the main objective of rapid environmental assessment of nethaji nagar lake (cheruvu) waters. The study of nethaji nagar lake (cheruvu) waters quality was assessed by three times during three months period. The study included Physico-Chemical quality parameters for waters and suitable remediation methods are identified. A high amount of nitrates, sulphates, BOD and a low value of Dissolved Oxygen were observed during all three months of study period and recommended various treatment methods for better and effective utilization of waters
