Siswan Dam and Sukhna Lake both are manmade water bodies situated in the range of Shivalik Hills at different geographical area like Village Siswan, S.A.S Nagar Punjab and north east region of Chandigarh respectively. We analysed distinct water quality sample from Siswan Dam and Sukhna Lake during October and November 2018 (Morning, Afternoon and evening). Besides this, Sukhna Lake is very popular place for tourism as compare to Siswan Dam. Sukhna Lake is famous for recreational activities like boating, sightseeing, food plaza, traditional boat race, canoe polo, canoe marathon and sport fishing also. On the other side, Siswan Dam has less tourism and mostly voyagers visit over there during their journey to Shimla. Dam comes under irrigation department of Punjab and lake comes under Department of Animal husbandry and Fisheries Sector Chandigarh UT and Forest Department respectively. On the other hand, Lake also declared as a national wetland of India and Department of Animal husbandry and Fisheries Sector Chandigarh UT also providing daily fishing licenses on different terms and conditions like for angling activity @ 40 rupee daily, 300 rupee for 10 days and 800 rupee for one month but there is no sport fishing and boating club at Dam except a CafÃ© Black Hole Siswan is situated in front of the entrance of Dam from Road side. During water sampling we assessed different water quality parameters like D.O, pH, Air Temperature, water temperature, alkalinity and water color from both sites. There was huge difference between water quality of Siswan dam and Sukhna Lake. We observed that Sukhna Lake water pH 8.4 was alkaline as compare to Siswan Dam pH 7.7 and not only pH there was huge difference in other water quality parameters also like water color and D.O respectively. With respect to these Situations Lake has a great scope of fisheries and sport fishing as compare to Dam.
