Physiochemical characteristics of textile effluents through common effluent treatment plant of Pali district
Author(s): Dr. Vinita Koka
Textile effluents are one of the major causes of degradation of environment quality, resulting in long term adverse health effects. These wastes have the potentiality of ultimately polluting soil and groundwater they come in contact with. Studies have shown that areas in close proximity of industrial activities are marked by contamination of soil, water and agricultural fields. Almost 90% of the textile processing units in Pali district are connected with CETP installed in different areas for treatment of textile effluents to control soil and water pollution. In Spite of the installation of CETP, the Bandi River still has enormous water and soil pollution adversely affecting the fertility of soil and purity of drinking water. In order to check the efficiency of a common effluent treatment plant (CETP), installed at Mandia Road, Pali, to control the industrial pollution of textile processing units in terms of effluent treatment. Samples were collected from inlet and outlet source of CETP and analyzed for various parameters such as Color, Odour, pH, Total suspended solids, (TSS), Total dissolved solids (TDS), Total solids, Chemical oxygen demand (COD), Biological oxygen demand (BOD) and electrical conductivity (EC). The results indicated that the sample had high value in TDS, COD, BOD and EC. Only pH is found within the permissible limit.
