Jakkur Lake (Figure 2) situated at 13º 04'N and 77° 36'E, North East of Bangalore.  Ten MLD sewage treatment plant is functional in this locality. Partially treated water is let into Jakkur Lake through wetlands (consisting of emergent macrophytes and algae). Water samples were collected (figure 2) from Inlet (S6), outlets (S1, S2, S3), middle (S4, S5 and S9) and at treatment plant outlet (S6 and S7) totaling nine locations. The treated water from the treatment plant passes through the wetlands to Jakkur Lake.
