In this paper, we study an analytical solution for the Pollution Distribution in lakes. The Homotopy Perturbation Method (HPM) is used to solve this problem which describes the distribution of the pollution in lakes. In this paper, two different forms of pollution have been simulated and compared with the numerical solution and Adomian Decomposition Method which are available in the literature. Unlike the various numerical techniques, which are usually valid for a limited time interval, the solution of the presented equation is analytical and applicable for all time intervals. Also, the results presented here indicate that the method is reliable, accurate and converges rapidly.
