The temperature, dissolved oxygen saturation, pH, conductivity, total hardness, total alkalinity, chemical oxygen demand, dissolved anions and cations (lithium, sodium, potassium, calcium, magnesium, ammonium, nitrite, nitrate, fluoride, chloride, bromide and sulfate ) and the total phosphorus amount were monitored. Kalecik Dam Lake was characterized as a medium hard waterly lake with lower pH and having low electrical conductivity and total solids amount, relatively low amounts of anions and cations were contained. Having higher pH, Cip Dam Lake was identified as a hard waterly lake which has high electrical conductivity and total solids amount as a result of dissolved anion and cation content. Each of the two reservoirs were determined as eutrophic lake at Class-II quality, due to the high total phosphorus content. Keywords : Kalecik Dam Lake, Cip Dam Lake, water quality
