Water flows from Magadi hills to Bangalore for about 60 Km, regulates the water quality phenomena through exchange of water. This is the main source of water to caterers drinking, domestic and irrigation purposes of Bangalore City and its sub unbans. Due to improper maintenance and increase papulations of Bangalore City, discharge of sewage water to the Vrishabhavathi river and further this water is flowing back and contaminate the main water bodies which may lead to alter the drinking water quality of Magadi hill range water bodies. Information about water quality monitoring reports and the future project monitoring for these Magadi hill range lakes and reservoirs with special reference to developing countries and its necessary methods/ devices will be reviewed and discussed.
