DOI : 10.17693/yunus.38843 Viewed : 2035 - Downloaded : 1559 The objectives of this study were to observe the monthly and annual changes in water samples through physico-chemical methods, to determine the water quality properties, to reveal the pollution problems, to determine the suitability level in terms of aquatic life, and to classify the quality of water in accordance with the Surface Water Quality Regulation (SWQR) criteria. This study was carried out through monthly sampling during January 2011-December 2013 in 3 stations at Kemeriz Dam. The water quality in Kemeriz dam was found to be Class I according to the SWQR. In order to protect the water quality and to ensure the health of aquatic life in this dam, it is required to make regular observations and to monitor the parameters affecting the water quality and aquatic life.
