Abstract

Diversity of diatoms and its correlation with water quality and CCME-WQI was studied in Chikkarasinakere, lake in Karnataka state, India. The diatom data of the lake were subjected to OMINIDA software to obtain the ecological values; it reveals that organic pollution indicators of diatom species are Navicula cryptocephala, Nitzschia palea and theanthropogenic pollution of diatom species are Navicula rhynchophyllaand Synedra ulna. The results of CCME reveal that the water quality is poor for the overall purpose. Drinking, aquatic, recreation and irrigation are categorized as marginal and livestock is categorized as marginal during April, May and February and in March as fair.
