Of all the natural resources, water is unarguably the most essential and precious. Life began in water and life is nurtured by water. Physico-chemical properties of water are very important for understanding the metabolic events in aquatic ecosystem. Present investigation were carried out physico-chemical properties of water of Ottu Reservoir in district Sirsa (Haryana) India .Water sample were collected for a period of April 2012 to June 2013 using plastic container. The sampling points were selected on the basis of their importance. water samples were taken to the laboratory and analyzed. The analysis was done for the parameters like Atmospheric temperature, Water temperature, trancperency, turbidity, pH, total dissolved solids, electrical conductivity, total hardness, DO, FREECO2 ,BOD,COD, total alkalinity, chloride, nitrate, sulphate, phosphate. pH shows that Ottu Reservoir water is alkaline in nature. pH, Total hardness, EC, chloride, nitrate and sulphate was found with in the WHO permissible limits.
