ABSTRACT Tekirdağ Province is located in the Thrace part of Marmara Region and the region can be declared as an agriculture
and industry city. Karaidemir Dam Lake, which is being used for agricultural irrigation and drinking water supply and flood
protection, is located in the Tekirdağ Province of Turkey. In this study, water quality of Karaidemir Dam Lake was evaluated
in terms of agricultural irrigation and drinking water supply. For this purpose, water samples were collected from 3 stations
selected on the reservoir in spring season of 2018 and total of 16 physical, chemical and biological water quality parameters
were measured. According to detected data, Karaidemir Dam Lake has moderate salty water (C2) in terms of total
concentration of soluble salts and the water of reservoir can be used for irrigation except stenohaline plants. Karaidemir Dam
Lake has I. – II. Class water quality in terms of temperature, dissolved oxygen, oxygen saturation, pH, TDS, nitrate, sulphate,
fluorine, EC and phosphate parameters; and III. – IV. Class water quality in terms of BOD, FC and nitrite parameters in
general. It was also determined that any investigated parameters except turbidity have not exceeded the drinking water limits.
