Abstract

The aim of this study is to evaluate the water quality of Germectepe Dam Lake located in the Da-day district of Kastamonu province and to determine the temperature, pH, turbidity, conductivity, dissolved oxygen, nitrate, nitrite, phosphate, ammonia, COD and BOD in terms of 11 physico-chemical parameters. In the results of the analysis, Germectepe Dam reservoir water quality according to surface water regulations was determined as the first quality in terms of temperature, pH, dissolved oxygen, conduction, nitrate, ammonium, COD and BOD parameters and II. quality in terms of nitrite, in terms of phosphate, IV quality. According to the fuzzy logic approach results obtained from the Germectepe Dam Lake for one year and including ten physico-chemical parametres into the rule base, 90% success was achieved in the decision support system and it was concluded that the fuzzy logic approach has infulance on the water quality classification.
