In Lakes and Wetlands there are certain areas which have stagnant water. These could be called Dead Zones. Water in these areas can be Anoxic or Anaerobic, depleted of Dissolved Oxygen. It has been observed that fish kills reported are first seen in these areas and around the shoreline. Usually fishes closer to the centre/islands are not affected.
This project aims to identify these Dead Zones and rejuvenate one of them using Vortex or other suitable system and understand the role of Dissolved oxygen in a lake by monitoring the water quality in the dead zone for a period of 10 months. The project will also focus on understanding the instrumentality of the wetland by analysing different samples like Alligator weed, Water Hyacinth, Sediment, Fish for heavy metals/N/P and others parameters
