The quality/portability of water that is consumed defines the baseline of protection against many diseases and infections. The present study aimed to calculate the monthly variation of physicochemical parameters of Tilyar Lake and the most suitable microbial strain for the survival of aquatic life. Water samples were collected from each sampling station and analyzed for estimation of pH, Electrical Conductivity (EC), Chemical oxygen demand (COD), Biological oxygen demand (BOD), Dissolved Oxygen (DO), Phosphate (PO43-), Nitrate (NO3–). During the study 12 different microbial strains have been selected from which Pseudomonas aeruginosa strain was found to be the most effective and consumes less dissolved oxygen as compared to 11 different microbial strains. Pseudomonas aeruginosa can work at a wide range of temperatures and consumption of DO is least as compared to the other 11 microbes during the experiments, the total of 138 liters of Pseudomonas aeruginosa sample needs to be added at a rate of 35.71?l/l (V/V).
