Mansi Wakal Dam is situated in Jhadol tehsil of Udaipur district of Rajasthan. Dam is constructed on the Mansi river of Berach basin, which have capacity of holding 24.4 million cubic meters of water. The main aim of this dam is to supply drinking water to rural areas as well as, water for industrial purpose to Hindustan Zinc. Present study is undertaken to assess the seasonal variation in alkalinity of the Mansi Wakal Dam?s water. Alkalinity in natural waters show the capacity of that water to neutralize the acidic medium. The consumption of alkaline water is controversial. The alkalinity of water is not significantly affected by season, but it gets higher along transboundary of the reservoir. Total alkalinity of the surface water of the dam is observed higher during monsoon season than that of winter and summer season.
