Molluscs species of three reservoirs Panshet, Khadakwasla and Ujjani reservoirs were studied. Good number of molluscs species were found in Ujjani reservoir comparatively. A Physicochmical study of three reservoirs was related with the abundance of molluscs. Presence of molluscs were due to alkaline nature, more calcium content and salts with high BOD ,COD Nutrients, plant population of Ujjani reservoir located in downstream which had relatively more dissolved salts than Panshet and Khadakwasla reservoir located in the upstream with less human pressures showed less number of molluscs.
