The water of Robertson Lake is suffering from severe contamination which is due to heavy discharge of pollutants without adequate treatment to remove harmful compounds. This is leading to the damaging effects not only to the individual species and population but also to natural biological community. The present work highlights the water quality index of Robertson Lake of Jabalpur. Water Quality Index (WQI) using remote sensing was applied in Robertson Lake India using water quality parameters like Temperature, Chloride, Hardness, Alkalinity, pH, Conductivity, Total Dissolved Solids (TDS), Fluoride, Iron, Turbidity, Dissolved Oxygen (DO) and Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD). The analysis reveals that Robertson Lake needs some treatment before consumption.
