ABSTRACT

 

The textile effluent containing dye, printing and processing waste water of Bagru region was analyzed to study the concentration levels of different effluents. Water samples were collected from twenty different locations in Bagru region and various parameters were analyzed viz pH, EC, TDS, TSS, COD, BOD, Nitrates, Phosphates and heavy metals like Cu and Cr. The results show extreme variation from the standard WHO specifications. The samples were found to contain pH and electrical conductivity in the range 5.40 to 10.34 and 2.19s/cm to 5.85s/cm respectively. The concentrations of Biological Oxygen Demand (BOD) and Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD) are found unexpectedly very high. A higher concentration of heavy metals was also detected. The concentration of nitrates and phosphates were present under the permissible limit set by WHO.
