Abstract—Soil gets polluted due to dumping of waste. Solid waste is garbage, refuse, sludge, and other discarded materials (including solids, liquids and contained gases) resulting from industrial, commercial, mining, and agricultural operations, and from community operations. The soil samples were taken from Shahpura lake of Bhopal to assess the soil quality. During the study period physico–chemical parameters viz pH, Moisture content, Bulk Density, Chloride of soil was assessed as per the standard methods. High chloride value indicates pollution of soil sediment due to urbanization, industrialization and modernization in agricultural system results in extensive use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides.
Index Terms—Bulk density, Moisture content, Chloride.
