The Water Quality Evaluation in Balihe Lake Based on Principal Component Analysis
The water pollution situation in Balihe Lake, the biggest tributary of Shaying River Basin in Anhui Province, China, has brought a huge pressure on the improvement of water quality in Huai River. On October 16th, 2017, 11 major pollution indexes were observed at 15 sampling points in Balihe Lake. Based on the data experimentally measured, the water quality in Balihe Lake was analyzed utilizing the Principal Component Analysis (PCA) of SPSS. The result suggested that the major components were oxygenated pollutants, water eutrophication pollutants and ammonia nitrogen, in which oxygenated pollutants played a dominant role. In addition, the upper part of Balihe Lake suffered serious situation and needed a focus on oxygenated pollutants.
