Abstract

The water quality is one of the most important criteria to ascertain its suitability for human beings and irrigation. This paper presents the effects of treated industrial waste water effluent on ground water as well as on surface water. The samples were collected from discharge point of treated industrial effluent in the river, upstream and downstream point of river and analyzed for physico-chemical characteristics such as pH, Electrical conductivity (EC), Total alkalinity (TA), Total acidity, Total hardness (TH), Chemical oxygen Demand (COD), Total Hardness, Chloride (Cl-), Sulfate (SO4) and Sodium (Na). For the analysis of effect of effluent on ground water quality, the tube well water at various distance from Wardha River were also collected. The obtained results were compared with WHO (World Health Organization) and BIS (Bureau of Indian Standards) limits. The results show that there is an infiltration of contaminants into the tube wells nearest to the point of discharge.
