Over the years plants have been used for the management and treatment of male infertility and it’s gradually gaining The Vembakottai dam is situated near Viudhunagar, Tamil Nadu. The present study deals with the change in physico-chemical parameters, such as air, water temperature, pH, dissolved solids, conductivity, alkalinity, hardness, Calcium, Magnesium, Ammonia, Nitrite, Chloride, Sulphate and Phosphate. These parameters were observed analysed from July 2012 to June 2013. The results suggest that water quality of the reservoir is within the desirable limits.
