In this study, analyzes were carried out monthly between May 2015 and May 2016 from the Lake Aygir and the irrigation pond for examining its water quality change and management. In-situ measurements were found as average water temperature 9.9±0.5 C, pH 8.14±0.00, dissolved oxygen 8.1±0.4 mg.L-1, oxygen saturation % 76.6±2.4, EC 353.1±4.1, SPC 435.0±4.5 μ, TDS 0.2881±0.0026 g.L-1, turbidity 0.6±0.1 NTU and transparency 5.8±0.7 m. In terms of in-situ measurements, Lake Aygir is not polluted and is suitable for drinking, usage, fishery, and irrigation.
