The piece of investigation was carried out to study the water as well as locked soil of sangwi reservoir of khargone, M.P. India. The change in physico chemical parameters of water such as water temperature, ph, turbidity, transparency, total hardness, Ca hardness, Mg hardness, alkalinity, chloride content, electrical conductivity, colour were analyzed in a period of March-April 2013.As above the physico chemical parameters of locked soil such as ph, colour, temperature, grain seize, specific gravity, moisture content, elasticity and plasticity were analyzed in above period. Sangwi reservoir, a small inland reservoir located in Village Sangwi, Teh Kasrawad District Khargone, Madhya Pradesh, India. .The nutrients including are in sufficient quantities for the growth of aquatic animals in the reservoir. The above study indicated that the reservoir is under the category of mesotrophic water body slightly inclined towards eutrophication. Therefore, the conservation and management of this water body is very much required. The result indicated that physico chemical parameters of reservoir water and locked soil were within the permissible limits and can be used for domestic and irrigation purpose.
